Erwin Chargaff (1940’s, Columbia, NYC): measured amounts of the various bases in DNAs from a variety of organisms Chargaff’s Rules: The amount of T = amount of A (A/T = 1.0) The amount of C = amount of G (C/G = 1.0) Thus, (A + G) / (T + C) = 1.0 Early studies of DNA: what is it?

Conclusions: 1. Most species are AT-rich Chargaff’s Rules 2. Base compositions vary from species-to- species

Chargaff’s Rules (VERY IMPORTANT) Because base compositions vary from species-to-species, the tetranucleotide theory is incorrect (there IS variability in DNA) Chargaff’s Rules were the clue Watson and Crick needed to solve the structure of DNA
