Since C and G base pair, we know that the % of C must = the % of C. Therefore, G = 32%.

Now, what % is left? Since G and C make up 64% in total, we've only got 36% left. Therefore, half of that is for A and ...

Solution Summary

Protein synthesis and DNA structure are investigated. The protein synthesis which begins with the N-terminal or with the C-terminal amino acid is determined.
