Undoubtedly, the discovery of the structure of the double helix in 1953 by James Watson and Francis Crick will be recorded as the foremost discovery in biology in this century. In just 40 years, the science of DNA has progressed to the stage where much is known about how genetic information is copied, transcribed, and organized. Moreover, gene therapy is now a reality, and a project to determine the complete sequence of the genomes of a number of organisms is well under way. It thus seemed natural to hold the 1993 Cold Spring Harbor Symposium, our 58th, on the topic of DNA. However, there were many celebratory meetings around the globe in honor of the 40 years of DNA, and we felt it was more appropriate to use the occasion to celebrate another significant milestone: Jim Watson's 25th year as Director of the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.
