This article is a tribute to Francis crick, a biophysicist who passed away on July 28, 2004. Francis crick, James Watson and Maurice Wilkins were jointly awarded the 1962 Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine for discovering the molecular structure of nucleic acids and its significance for information transfer in living material. It is pointed out that the diverse background and unique sensitivity of crick to science enabled him to have great insights into frontier research. He had a special capacity for prudent and logical thinking, which contributed so much to the development of molecular biology. Based on Francis crick’s academic achievements in molecular biology and by virtue of internal history approaches such as concept analysis and literature research, this paper is aimed at revealing the historical contributions of crick in a condensed way and to commemorate his work.
