Watson-Crick base pairs is a specific complementary base pairs that base A is always paired with base T while base G is always paired with base C. These base pairs were introduced by James Watson and Francis Crick. In Watson-Crick base pairs, the number of hydrogen bonds formed between A and T are 2 while there are 3 formed between base G and C. [1]
