DNA base pairing
« on: May 05, 2004, 12:56:26 PM »
I have this question:  What sequence would compliment the following DNA sequence.
T-A-G-G-C-T-A

and in my chemistry book it informs me: remembering that A always bonds to T and C always bonds to G, go through the original sequence replacing each A by T, each T by A, each C by G and each G by C.

So would I get

A-T-C-C-G-A-T

does this look right?

You obviously already know the answer. :P
Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex
