Phoebus Levene's contributions -- the distinction between DNA and RNA.
The work of Erwin Chargaff and how it contributed to the downfall of Levene's tetranucleotide theory.
Did Levene's tetranucleotide theory affect the development of ideas in the field of nucleic acid research?
Phoebus Levene was an organic chemist in the early 1900's. He is perhaps best known for his incorrect tetranucleotide hypothesis of DNA.

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.
