DNA Double Helix:

🧬The two #DNA strands are reverse-complements

🧬Reading one strand in #reverse order and exchanging each base with its #complement gives the other strand

🧬A and T are complements, C and G are complements

DNA Sequence: AGTAGCAT
Reverse-Complement: ATGCTACT
In #Each DNA Strand:

🧬Pull the #DNA double helix apart, leaving the two single DNA strands

🧬The population (or occurrence) of every DNA sequence in that single-strand is #equivalent to the population of its reverse-complement DNA sequence in that same single-strand
