Most living organisms have the same sort of genetic material, dna, in their cells dna contains two strands wrapped around each other in a helix, and these strands are held in place by four chemicals called bases: adenine (a), guanine (g), cytosine (c. 2018-7-19 watson and crick describe structure of dna 1953 photo: model of dna molecule in the late nineteenth century, a german biochemist found the nucleic acids, long-chain polymers of nucleotides, were made up of sugar, phosphoric acid, and several nitrogen-containing bases. Dna (deoxyribonucleic acid) is composed of two polynucleotide strands (the polymers of nucleotides), which form what looks like a ladder the nitrogenous bases in dna store the instructions for making polypeptide chains, essentially coding.
