AGE OF "INNOCENTS"
Fifty years after James D. Watson and Francis Crick discovered the double helix structure of genetic information, DNA has found for itself a niche in popular culture as well. It has spawned fashion accessories, pop music and, at the moment, six exhibitions that together make up “The DNAge,” a festival in New York celebrating the 50th anniversary of the double helix.
It is in the field of criminal evidence, however, that DNA has most captured the public’s attention. In recent years, thousands have been convicted as a direct result of DNA evidence, and 123 Americans have also been exonerated, including 12 who had been on death row.
