[Notes on Pauling and Corey's "Proposed Structure for Nucleic Acids"]
In January 1953, Linus Pauling proposed a three-helix structure for DNA. Franklin found several errors in his reasoning, based
on her own research, which are jotted down here. She later wrote to Pauling, explaining why his model was wrong, though she
did not succeed in changing his mind.
