Franklin is best known for her work on the X-ray diffraction images of DNA. Between them was the famous Photo 51. It was used by James Watson and Francis Crick to deduce the double-helix structure of DNA. She could have won the Nobel Prize for the photo, but she died at age 37 and Nobel Committee does not make posthumous nominations.
