Scientists analyze the genome of a lab mouse and discover 35% of it genome is made of adenine. What are the percentages of the other nucleotide bases? Please write the answers as whole number percentages. Do not include unnecessary decimal places.
We immediately know thymine is 35% because A and T always bond.
A: 35% + T: 35% = 70%
Entire genome: 100% - 70% = 30% for G and C
G and C must be equal because they always bond. That means,
30%/2 = 15%
Guanine and cytosine each take up 15% of the genome.
