This way of labeling a sequence refers to the length of the DNA (or RNA) molecules in terms of the number of positions they have available for nucleotides. For instance, the sequence in Figure 1-5 is 5 nt long. Notice that we say number of positions rather than number of nucleotides. A 400-nt long DNA molecule has 400 positions for nucleotides, but it actually contains twice that many (800) because every position contains a pair of nucleotides. To make this clearer, DNA sequence sizes are often given in base pairs, abbreviated bp.
