Concentration of Nucleotides

  1. Aug 30, 2011 #1

    I was wondering if given the concentration of DNA, how does one calculate the concentration of nucleotides? Are they the same thing?

    The concentration of nucleotides would just be the concentration of DNA multiplied by the number of nucleotides per molecule of DNA. For example a 1nM solution of a 100bp piece of double-stranded DNA would have a nucleotide concentration of 200nM.
