Crick, Watson, and Franklin DNA structure (article)
The April 25, 1953 issue of Nature published Crick and Watson’s 900-word article, “A Structure for Deoxyribose Nucleic Acid.”. Wilkins and Franklin, who both accepted Crick and Watson’s solution, wrote accompanying articles. By the 1960s scientists generally embraced the double helix as the structure of DNA, and in 1962 Wilkins, Watson.
The discovery of the molecular structure of DNA
What is DNA? The work of many scientists paved the way for the exploration of DNA. Way back in 1868, almost a century before the Nobel Prize was awarded to Watson, Crick and Wilkins, a young Swiss physician named Friedrich Miescher, isolated something no one had ever seen before from the nuclei of cells. He called the compound “nuclein.
14.1 Historical Basis of Modern Understanding
Over fifty years later, Griffith’s work transforming strains of the bacterium Streptococcus pneumoniae provided the first clue that DNA and not protein (as others argued) is the universal molecule of heredity. Griffith’s conclusions were later supported by Avery, MacLeod, and McCarty.
Isolating the Hereditary Material
Aa Aa Aa. In the first half of the twentieth century, Gregor Mendel’s principles of genetic inheritance became widely accepted, but the chemical nature of the hereditary material remained unknown.
Oswald Avery, DNA, and the transformation of biology
In 1945, Avery received the Copley Medal from the Royal Society; the citation stated that he had shown that the gene “appears to be nucleic acid of the desoxyribose type” .
The History of DNA
The History of DNA Learning Outcomes Understand the historical basis of our understanding of DNA Figure 1. Friedrich Miescher (1844–1895) discovered nucleic acids. Our current understanding of DNA began with the discovery of nucleic acids followed by the development of the double-helix model.
