Dna Polymerase

Science / Biology / Dna Polymerase: In DNA replication, the enzyme that links the complementary nucleotides together to form the newly synthesized strand.

DNA Virus

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

Cdna

Science / Genetics / Cdna: Complementary dna produced from a rna template by the action of rna- dependent dna polymerase. MORE

Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)

Science / Biology / Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR): A method of amplifying or copying DNA fragments that is faster than cloning. The fragments are combined with DNA polymerase, nucleotides, and other components to form a mixture in which the DNA is cyc 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

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

Exogenous DNA

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