What ratio GC/AT should we expect from a mutating genome ?

As the good doctor said, we can't formulate any expectations, really. Not without knowing more about mutation and repair than we currently know. Note, for example, that a highly active family of transposons in a particular species will introduce lots of new sequence into the genome, pushing the GC content toward whatever the transposon happens to have.
sfs, are you the same person as sfs1 on Tweb ?

The last time I checked, yes, I was.
