Melting temperature of dna

melting temperature of DNA –>
denaturation temperature of DNA
That temperature at which, under a given set of conditions, double-stranded dNA is changed (50%) to single-stranded DNA; under standard conditions, the base composition of the DNA can be estimated from the denaturation temperature, since the greater the denaturation temperature, the greater the guaninepluscytosine content (i.e., gC content) of the DNA.
Synonym: melting temperature of DNA.
