Virology - Calculations

... -I believe I'd take the 60kd and turn it into 60,000daltons and then multiply the 60000 by 330Da/nucleotide to get 1.98x10^7 bases or 1.98x10^4 kilobases. How do I calculate the molecular weight? **How many kilobase pairs in a single double-stranded DNA 9345 nucleotide base pairs long? -9345 ...

Re: Evolutionists Show of Shutting Down the Debate

... between the wild-type (light-colored) and carbonaria forms has remained unknown. We have genetically mapped the carbonaria morph to a 200-kilobase region orthologous to a segment of silkworm chromosome 17 and show that there is only one core sequence variant associated with the carbonaria ...

Re: # genes = # DNA?

# GENES IS SAME AS # DNA? 23K genes = 23K DNA? Thank you for your repsonses :0 No. DNA is measured in base pairs (bp) or kilobase pairs (kb). 1 gene can be any number of bp or kb of DNA in length. Total DNA content includes noncoding DNA + coding sequences (e.g. genes).
