DNA Hybridization

Science / Genetics / DNA Hybridization: A technique for selectively binding specific segments of single-stranded (ss) dna or rna by base pairing to complementary sequences on ssdna molecules that are trapped on a nitrocellulose filter.

Hybridization

Science / Chemistry / Hybridization: The combination of a set of atomic orbitals to produce a new set of 'hybrid' orbitals. Hybridized orbitals are theoretical constructions that make molecular structures easier to explain. For example, MORE

In Situ Hybridization

Science / Genetics / In Situ Hybridization: Use of a dna or rna probe to detect the presence of the complementary dna sequence in cloned bacterial or cultured eukaryotic cells. MORE

Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH)

Science / Genetics / Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization (FISH): A physical mapping approach that uses fluorescein tags to detect hybridization of probes with metaphase chromosomes and with the less- condensed somatic interphase chromatin. 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

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
