I have seen the same nucleotide written in 3 different ways, and I would like to know the guidelines and rules for writing them in all 3 ways. For example: I have seen 'thymidine dinucleotide' written as pTpT, p(dT)2, and a 3rd way that was written using a 5' and 3'(I cant remember the exact way, but I remember the 5' and 3' with some stuff in between). pTpT, I pretty much understand. p(dT)2, I think I know(except for the d?). The 3rd way I have no clue.
Re: What are the different ways to write/abbreviate nucleotides?
