Genomes can have different percentages of G and C bases/nucleotides
We can multiply this figure by 100 to make it a percentage
345 (G) + 370 (C) / 1000 (G+C+A+T) = 0.715
How can GC content be useful to learn more about gene features or genomic regions (smaller regions of the genome) if the same value of GC content applies to the whole genome?Share your answer in the comments area, and give a reason for your response. Is your answer and reason the same as others?
100 * 0.715 = 71.5 % GC
