Nucleotide Sequences

Science / Biology / Nucleotide Sequences: The genetic code encrypted in the sequence of bases along a nucleic acid.

Complementary Nucleotides

Science / Biology / Complementary Nucleotides: The bonding preferences of nucleotides, Adenine with Thymine, and Cytosine with Guanine. Also referred to as complementary base pairing. MORE

Repeat Sequences

Science / Genetics / Repeat Sequences: The length of a nucleotide sequence that is repeated in a tandem cluster. MORE

Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP)

Science / Genetics / Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP): Dna sequence variations that occur when a single nucleotide (a, t, c, or g) in the genome sequence is altered. MORE

Tandem Repeat Sequences

Science / Genetics / Tandem Repeat Sequences: Multiple copies of the same base sequence on a chromosome: used as markers in physical mapping. MORE


Science / Genetics / Oligonucleotide: A molecule usually composed of 25 or fewer nucleotides: used as a dna synthesis primer. MORE


Science / Biology / Polynucleotides: Long chains of nucleotides formed by chemical links between the sugar and phosphate groups. MORE
