Public collections of DNA and RNA sequence reach 100 gigabases
... DNA and RNA sequence information have reached 100 gigabases
[100,000,000,000 bases; the 'letters' of the genetic code] of sequence. Thanks to their data exchange policy, which has paved the way for the global exchange of many types of biological information, the three members of the International Nucleotide S...
Public collections of DNA & RNA sequence data reach 100 gigabases
...cant milestone by collecting and disseminating 100 gigabases
of sequence data. For a frame of reference, one hundred billion bases is about equal to the number of nerve cells in a human brain and a bit less than the number of stars in the Milky Way. These 100,000,000,000 bases, or "letters" of the genetic code...
