Document Summary

Dna was first identified by friedrich miescher in 1869. However, it was not until the 1940s that dna was accepted as the genetic material based on the evidence shown by experiments carried out by oswald avery and his colleagues. Even then, there still weren"t many scientists studying dna, but one of them was. Chargaff however, didn"t grasp the full implications of his discovery. The race to the double helix: the race to figure out the structure of dna is one of the most exciting and important events in scientific history. After the news spread about avery"s work, a lot of scientists started working on dna. Franklin, at king"s college in london england, tried applying the methods of x- ray crystallography to study dna. This was before kendrew had solved the structure of myoglobin (the first protein to be solved by x-ray), so franklin"s plan was ambitious, to say the least.
