Dear All

I'm asking about Measurement Units of DNA,

In some journals & websites there are some units used for DNA and RNA calculation, I don't know what its mean, and when I search about it, I don't find good information
I hope if you know about it..

For example:
this phrase:

Fill in answers to 13 and either 4 (for converting ng/ml to pM) or 5 (for converting pM to ng/ml).
what mean pM..?

and also this one:

What is the specific activity of your radiolabeled nucleotide stock (Ci/mmol)?

What is the concentration of your radiolabeled nucleotide stock (mCi/ml)?

what means by mCi, Ci

and many others....
is there any website, pdf, books or anything that describe the meaning?

Waiting for your kind response,..
And regards

pM is most likely pico Molar

If you don't know it, then ask it! Better to ask and look foolish to some than not ask and stay stupid.
