Griffith

Experiment:

  • S strain bacteria injected into mouse -> mouse died
  • R strain bacteria injected into mouse -> mouse lived
  • Heated S strain injected into mouse -> mouse lived
  • Heated S (dead) and alive R strain ->mouse died

Outcome: Cells contain a substance called transforming factor that can change the genome of a host.

Avery

Experiment:

  • S strain bacteria injected into mouse -> mouse died
  • R strain bacteria injected into mouse -> mouse lived
  • Heated S strain injected into mouse -> mouse lived
  • Heated S (dead) and alive R strain ->mouse died

Outcome: When the S strain was heated and killed its DNA was incorporated into the R strains DNA and changed the R strain into S strain.

*Still unknown whether DNA or protein was the “transforming factor”

Hershey-Chase

Experiment:

Outcome: DNA NOT proteins were the source of genetic material. DNA is the “transforming factor”
