A double stranded RNA genome of 500 kbp isolated from a virus in the stool of a child with gastroenteritis was found to contain 35% uracil. Determine the quantity of guanine,adenine and thymine present in this genome.
RNA doesn’t contain any thymine. Uracil in RNA is complementary to adenine and it is an unmethylated form of thymine. Quantity of adenine is equal to quantity of uracil. U=A=35% (or 350000 bases) Guanine is complementary to cytosine. G=C=(100%-U-A)/2=(100%-35%-35%)2=15% (or 150000 bases).
Numbers and figures are an essential part of our world, necessary for almost everything we do every day. As important…

I was amazed on the turnaround on not only the work but the response time. There were 4-5 assignments before that began to make me wonder on the customer service aspect and not just the completion of work. This assignment and support brought light at the end of the tunnel.
