Concept #1: Meselson-Stahl Experiment

Practice: The Meselson-Stahl experiment demonstrated that DNA replication produces new molecules of DNA each containing…

Practice: The DNA of a phage was injected into the bacterial host, but the protein coat remained outside. The viral DNA directed the host to replicate the new phage viruses. Which scientist(s) are associated with this finding?
