Of all possible DNA nucleotide sequences, what sequence of base pairs would dissociate most easily into single strands if the DNA duplex were heated gently?

  • science- DNA -

    A sequence with only A and T in it. A binds to T with two hydrogen bonds. G binds to C with three hydrogen bonds. The bonding between an A and a T is weaker, and more easily broken, than between a G and a C.
