hmmm....2000?
no
cuz 3 nucleotides = 1codon=1amino acid

answer is 1000 but why
@Natshane how ah?
I got 100 :(
ahh! I think I found it! double stranded = 6000 nucleotides One strand is coded into mRNA so 6000/2 = 3000 nucleotides 3 nucleotide = 1 codon = 1 amino acid 3000/3 = 1000 amino acids!
Thank:)
no problem :)
