Number of DNA Base Pairs
How many base pairs are there in DNA?
Deoxyribonucleic acids or DNA consists of two types of base pairs ‘â€œ the adenine-thymine (A-T) base pair and the guanine-cytosine (G-C) base pair. DNA pairing generally consist of hydrogen bonding between a large purine (adenine, guanine) and a pyrimidine (thymine, cytrosine). The human genome is believed to consist of 3 billion base pairs, according to the International Human Genome Sequencing Consortium.
