A good rule of thumb with boneless chicken is that approximately one-third of the total weight equals the amount of protein it contains.
As a first step in identifying a gene's role, scientists usually analyze the gene's DNA sequence to predict the structure of the protein it encodes.
Before that, however, they determined the full DNA sequence of the gene and deduced the amino acid sequence of the protein it encoded.
