Enter any parameter to calculate the remaining parameters:

Size of DNA (in bases)
Protein Length (amino acids)
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  0.11kDa
0.11kDa is the average molecular weight of an amino acid
