Re: Virology - Calculations

... protein of 60 kilodaltons and how many nucleotide bases does this represent? -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? those 60 kDa or weight ...
