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.

Cdna Library

Science / Genetics / Cdna Library: A collection of dna sequences that code for genes. The sequences are generated in the laboratory from mrna sequences. MORE

Alu Repetitive Sequence

Science / Genetics / Alu Repetitive Sequence: The most common dispersed repeated dna sequence in the human genome accounting for 5% of human dna. The name is derived from the fact that these sequences are cleaved by the restriction endonuclease a MORE
