Protein Coding Capacity of DNA

need 1 parameter at least
1. Size of DNA (in bases) 2. Protein Length (amino acids) 3. Size of Protein (in kDa)

amino acids encoded  =  Size of DNA (in bases) / 3

Size of DNA  =  3  x  Number of amino acids
Predicted size of protein  =  Number of amino acids  x  0.11 kDa
0.11kDa is the average molecular weight of an amino acid
