how do you determine based on the mole% of the G-C Content, if two different organisms are closely related?

ie: The G-C content of Micrococcus is 66-75 moles %, and of Staphylococcus, 30-40 moles %. According to this information, would you conclude that these two genera are closely related; Explain your answer.

Basing on the frequency of your posts... I would hazard a guess that this question you posted is asked by your professor a while back. I see nobody taking the bait to answer this. I would think you can get the answer from the net if you really wanted.

Hint: Having the same physical appearance doesn't make your classmate your brother / sister.
