THE ratio of guanine plus cytosine to adenine plus thymine (GC/AT) in the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) of a given species of a micro-organism is constant, but the GC/AT ratio of different kinds of microorganisms can vary by a factor of as much as five times1. The ratio of GC content to AU (uracil) content of cell ribonucleic acid (RNA) varies only slightly from one organism to another; but this ratio tends to be slightly higher in organisms the DNA ratio of which is high2. These facts raise a… Expand
