Dna Ligase

Science / Biology / Dna Ligase: In recombinant DNA technology, an enzyme that seals together two DNA fragments from different sources to form a recombinant DNA molecule.

Recombinant Dna Molecules

Science / Biology / Recombinant Dna Molecules: New combinations of DNA fragments formed by cutting DNA segments from two sources with restriction enzyme and then joining the fragments together with DNA ligase. Interspecies transfer of genes usuall 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

Junk DNA

Science / Genetics / Junk DNA: Stretches of dna that do not code for genes: most of the genome consists of so-called junk dna which may have regulatory and other functions. Also called non-coding dna. MORE

Exogenous DNA

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

Lligase

Science / Genetics / Lligase: An enzyme that functions in dna repair. 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
