They would heat wine in China. This process slows microbial growth.
Edward Jenner invented the first vaccine which was for small pox. He was known as the father of immunology.
Discovery of Proteins
Proteins were first described by the Dutch chemist Gerardus Johannes Mulder and named by the Swedish chemist Jöns Jacob Berzelius in 1838. Proteins are biochemical compounds consisting of one or more polypeptides.
Discovery of Genetic Inhertitance Patterns
Genetics deals with the molecular structure and function of genes, with gene behavior in the context of a cell or organims, with patterns of inheritance from parent to offspring. Gregor Mendal discovered this.
Discovery of Enzymes
German physiologist Wilhelm Kühne first used the term enzyme. The word enzyme was used later to refer to nonliving substances
First Public Vaccination Campaign
The Anti-Vaccination Society of America was founded by William Tebb. They were against vaccines and afraid of the side effect that could happen.
First Biotech Drug
Insulin was the first biotech drug that saved Leonard Thompson's life. It is a drug that is used to regulate blood sugar for someone with diabetes.
Alexander Fleming was the one to discover Penicillin. It didn't start getting used until the 1940s/
Discovery of DNA Structure
James Watson and Francis Crick presented the structure of the DNA-helix, the molecule that carries genetic information from one generation to the other. DNA is made up of four bases adenine, thymine, guanine and cytosine.
The Hershey–Chase experiments were a series of experiments conducted in 1952 by Alfred Hershey and Martha Chase, which helped to confirm that DNA was the genetic material.
First Gene Sequenced
The first DNA sequences were obtained in the early 1970s by academic researchers using laborious methods based on two-dimensional chromatography. DNA sequencing has become easier and orders of magnitude faster.
First Recombinant Organism
Stanley Cohen and Herbert Boyer created the first recombinant DNA organism using recombinant DNA techniques. Recombinant DNA is a technique that allows scientists to manipulate the DNA of an organism.
It was an experiment that DNA is the substance that causes bacterial transformation.
