In the winter of 1868/9 the young Swiss doctor Friedrich Miescher, working in the laboratory of Felix Hoppe-Seyler at the University of Tübingen, performed experiments on the chemical composition of leukocytes that lead to the discovery of DNA. [...] Key Result Its properties during the isolation procedure and its resistance to protease digestion indicated that the novel substance was not a protein or lipid.Expand
