Four units of DNA
A, C, G and T. adenine cytosine guanine and thymine. These are the four chemical building blocks of the DNA molecule. They are componants of nucleic acid, which gives DNA it's tongue-twisting full name: deoxyribonucleic acid.

Blocks to bases, DNA Has Four Units.
Because it contains the directions for assembling the components of the cell, DNA is often thought of as the "instruction book" for assembling life.
Friedrich Miescher and Phoebus Levene research nuclein, protein. and DNA.
Erwin Chargaff found that in DNA, the ratios of adenine (A) to thymine (T) and guanine (G) to cytosine (C) are equal. This parity is obvious in the final DNA structure.
Deoxyribose and phosphate molecules form the uprights and nucleotide pair form the rungs of the DNA ladder.
15492. Discovering the double helix structure of DNA, James Watson, video with 3D animation and narration
James Watson used cardboard cutouts representing the shapes of the DNA bases to figure out how bases pair.
Changes in the DNA are reflected in the protein product. There is a correlation between what happens to the genetic sequence and the resulting protein sequence.
DNA polymerase and an experiment using nitrogen isotopes prove DNA replication.
James Watson and Francis Crick explain how they solved the structure of DNA. Erwin Chargaff explain how he measured the levels of each of the four nitrogenous bases.
Early sequencers used four different reactions to determine the placement of each of DNA's four bases - known as A, C, T & G - in the sequence.
