Cloned DNA

Science / Genetics / Cloned DNA: Any dna fragment that passively replicates in the host organism after it has been joined to a cloning vector.

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

DNA Virus

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

DNA Sequencing

Science / Genetics / DNA Sequencing: Plus and minus or 'primed synthesis' method, developed by sanger, dna is synthesized in vitro in such a way that it is radioactively labeled and the reaction terminates specifically at the position co MORE

Mitochondrial DNA

Science / Genetics / Mitochondrial DNA: The genetic material found in mitochondria, the organelles that generate energy for the cell. Not inherited in the same fashion as nucleic dna. MORE
