Resumen"If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants" (letter of Isaac Newton to Robert Hooke). This well-known sentence of Newton finds its correct meaning in biology through the work of Oswald Avery (1877-1955), Colin MacLeod (1909-1972), and Maclyn McCarty (1911-2005) that was published in 1944 in The Journal of Experimental Medicine, which showed that DNA carried genetic information. These giants of molecular biology attained scientific evidence to provide shoulders strong enough to allow Crick and Watson to build on the foundations laid down by this group to postulate, 9 years later, the double-helix model of DNA. Maclyn McCarty died in New York on January 3, 2005, at age 93. At the time of his death, he was an active editor of the above-mentioned journal, which is published by The Rockefeller University.
