Annotation For a long time scientists believed that protein molecules controlled living cells and were responsible for inheritance. But the work of scientists from the early 1940s to the early 1960s led to the discovery of deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA, a complex molecule that is found in all cells and plays a vital role in heredity.
