Is the % GC content of the genone from a eubacterial species reflected in the % GC content of that organisms 16S rRNA
gene or tRNA genes?  One person I've talked to says yes but can't produce a reference and another person says no but
can't produce a referentce either.  I would greatly appreciate it if someone could provide me with references either
way.  Thanks.
