He identified a complex carbohydrate called polysacharide.
He showed that lobar pneumonia could transform from one strain into a different strain. This was later identified as DNA.
He showed that Frederick griffith's transforming principle was DNA.
Chargaff had 2 main rules named after him. They stated that the number of guanine inits is eual to the number of cytosine units. Likewise with adenine and thymine.
Linus Pauling determined that the structure of a class of proteins is a helix.
The Hershey-Chase experiments confirmed that DNA was genetic material. Hershey and Chase showed that when bacteriophages, infect bacteria, their DNA enters the host bacterial cells, but most of their protein does not..
Franklin was an expert x-ray crystallographer. Her work on the x-ray diffraction images of DNA led to the discovery of the DNA double helix. Her data was used in Crick adn Watson's hypothesis on the structure of DNA.
Discovered DNA double helix using models and data gathered from other scientists.
