If Meselson and Stahl's experiment is continued for four generations in bacteria, the ratio of N15/N15: N15/N14: N14/N14 containing DNA in the fourth generation would be:
After 60 minutes or third generation, bacteria has 25 % hybrid (15N 14N) IN 1:3. After 80 minutes or fourth generation bacteria has 12.5% hybrid in 1:7.
