Complementary DNA (CDNA)

Science / Genetics / Complementary DNA (CDNA): Dna that is synthesized from a messenger rna template: the single-stranded form is often used as a probe in physical mapping.

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

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

DNA Sequence

Science / Genetics / DNA Sequence: The relative order of base pairs, whether in a fragment of dna, a gene, a chromosome, or an entire genome. See base sequence analysis. MORE

DNA Repair Genes

Science / Genetics / DNA Repair Genes: Genes encoding proteins that correct errors in dna sequencing. MORE

DNA Replication

Science / Genetics / DNA Replication: The use of existing dna as a template for the synthesis of new dna strands. In humans and other eukaryotes, replication occurs in the cell nucleus. MORE
