    Analysis of base composition from DNA extraction in Aspergillus niger was seen to contain 37% cytosine. Using this data predict the % of adenine. If the same were detected in Tobacco Mosaic Virus [TMV], will it be possible to predict the % of adenine. This job gives reasons.

    Solution Preview

    Cytosine = 37%, so Guanine = 37%
    37% C + _ % T = 37% G + _ % A
    Therefore A ...

    Solution Summary

    Predicting base composition in Aspergillus niger and TMV is emphasized.
