How many base pairs are there in DNA?

2.

Deoxyribonucleic acids or DNA consists of two types of base pairs ‘“ the adenine-thymine (A-T) base pair and the guanine-cytosine (G-C) base pair. DNA pairing generally consist of hydrogen bonding between a large purine (adenine, guanine) and a pyrimidine (thymine, cytrosine). The human genome is believed to consist of 3 billion base pairs, according to the International Human Genome Sequencing Consortium.
