tried to make a crystal of the DNA molecule with Rosalind Franklin. If they could get DNA to crystallize, then they could make an x-ray pattern, thus resulting in understanding how DNA works http://library.thinkquest.org
He noticed a pattern in the amounts of the four bases: adenine, guanine, cytosine, and thymine. He took samples of DNA of different cells and found that the amount of adenine was almost equal to the amount of thymine, and that the amount of guanine was almost equal to the amount of cytosine. Thus you could say: A=T, and G=C. This discovery later became Chargaff’s Rule.
He enabled others to point out that DNA was the molecule of inheritance.
Griffith's experiment involved mice and two types of pneumonia, a virulent and a non-virulent kind. He injected the virulent pneumonia into a mouse and the mouse died. Next he injected the non-virulent pneumonia into a mouse and the mouse continued to live. After this, he heated up the virulent disease to kill it and then injected it into a mouse. The mouse lived on. Last he injected non-virulent pneumonia and virulent pneumonia, that had been heated and killed, into a mouse. This mouse died.
