    When did scientist figure out about DNA? And How old were you when you knew about it?

    I'm totally clueless but I think they just found out about it not too long ago... My 8 yr old just picked a chunk of dog hair up off the floor and said "did you know this has DNA in it?" Im amazed.

    Every new Generation ... comes equipped the its "Generation Relevant Knowledge" ... Though I am 70, I still have to ask my kids, to help me with my Computer related problems ... Their Generation came equipped with all the Computer related Knowledge !
    Thus, I have to Adapt and Learn Computing ... whereas they, more or less, do it intrinsically ... !

    Schooling, by the way, is the Teaching, of Symbolic Values, Adopted by a Society ... in whatever be the child's Society/language ...

    And Education, is simply, the Polishing of what the child already Knows ... !

    My nephew ... he is 26years old now ... had memorized the whole Koran, by the time he was 8 years old ... meaning, he can recite the entire Koran, in proper order ... from Memory ... like millions of other Muslims ...

    The nephew ... knew, where the car's ignition key had to go to start the car ... how to switch on the lights ... and the purpose of Clutch, and Steering wheel ... when he was barely seven months old !

    Figure what out about DNA?

    The inheritance of genetic factors was discovered by Gregor Mendel in 1866.

    Several discoveries followed in the intervening years until perhaps the most important biological discovery of our Age:

    Its structure was elucidated primarily by James Watson and Francis Crick (with not an insignificant contribution from Rosalind Franklin) in 1953. It is a sad fact that Franklin did not share the Nobel Prize for this discovery, as she died before it was awarded. As such, her lab head Maurice Wilkins shared the prize (given in 1963), despite contributing comparatively little.

    The process of replication was discovered by the Meselson-Stahl experiment in 1958.
