Dna Hybridization

Science / Biology / Dna Hybridization: The formation of hybrid DNA molecules that contain a strand of DNA from two different species. The number of complementary sequences in common in the two strands is an indication of the degree of relatedness of the species.

Hybridization

Science / Chemistry / Hybridization: The combination of a set of atomic orbitals to produce a new set of 'hybrid' orbitals. Hybridized orbitals are theoretical constructions that make molecular structures easier to explain. For example, MORE

In Situ Hybridization

Science / Genetics / In Situ Hybridization: Use of a dna or rna probe to detect the presence of the complementary dna sequence in cloned bacterial or cultured eukaryotic cells. MORE

Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH)

Science / Genetics / Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH): A physical mapping approach that uses fluorescein tags to detect hybridization of probes with metaphase chromosomes and with the less- condensed somatic interphase chromatin. MORE

Finished DNA Sequence

Science / Genetics / Finished DNA Sequence: High-quality, low error, gap-free dna sequence of the human genome. Achieving this ultimate 2003 hgp goal requires additional sequencing to close gaps, reduce ambiguities, and allow for only a single MORE

DNA Virus

Health / Disease / DNA Virus: A virus that has DNA as its genetic material and replicates using a DNA-dependent DNA polymerase. MORE

Exogenous DNA

Science / Genetics / Exogenous DNA: Dna originating outside an organism that has been introducted into the organism. MORE
