# if the length od DNa is 1.5 mm, what is the size od the genome of the organism?

length (l) of DNA= no. of base pairs(n) x distance between the bases(d). thus when l= 1.5 x 10^-3 and d= 0.34 x10^-9, the genome size(n)= 1.5 x 10^-3 divided by 0.34 x10^-9= 2 x10^6
( a ) $2\times 10^5$ bp
( b ) $2\times10^6$ bp
( c ) $2 \times10^{-6}$ bp
( d ) $2\times 10^4$ bp
Can you answer this question?

Ans: B: $2\times10^6$ bp
