Geneticists’ notes published in Wellcome digitisation project

The Wellcome Library has made the papers of modern geneticists including Francis Crick and Rosalind Franklin freely available as part of a £5.8 million digitisation project.

Codebreakers is the first phase of a programme to create integrated online content including digitised books, films and photographs. The initial stage, costing £3.9m, involves over a million pages of first-hand notes, letter, sketches, lectures, photographs and essays, with another 500,000 pages expected over the next six months.

The programme forms part of the Wellcome Library’s expansion, which is due to be completed in summer 2014.
