DNA Renaturation: experiments where DNA is denatured and allowed to renature; measures the amount of repetitive DNA is present in a sample
DNA renaturation experiments can be used to compare the complexity of genomes of organisms.
DNA renaturation experiments are useful strategies to estimate the (there may be more than one right answer).
a) size of an organism's genome
b) number of single nucleotide differences between two species
c) proportion of GC content in an organism's genome
d) genetic relatedness between two species
