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 error every 10,000 bases, the agreed-upon standard for hgp finished sequence.

Polymerase (DNA Or RNA)

Science / Genetics / Polymerase (DNA Or RNA): Enzymes that catalyze the synthesis of nucleic acids on preexisting nucleic acid templates, assembling rna from ribonucleotides or dna from deoxyribonucleotides. MORE

Nucleotide Sequences

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

Recombinant DNA (Rdna)

Business / Agriculture / Recombinant DNA (Rdna): The technique of isolating DNA molecules and inserting them into the DNA of a cell ('recombining DNA'). Also known as genetic engineering. MORE

Recombinant Dna Molecules

Science / Biology / Recombinant Dna Molecules: New combinations of DNA fragments formed by cutting DNA segments from two sources with restriction enzyme and then joining the fragments together with DNA ligase. Interspecies transfer of genes usuall MORE

Recombinant Dna Technology

Science / Biology / Recombinant Dna Technology: A series of techniques in which DNA fragments are linked to self-replicating forms of DNA to create recombinant DNA molecules. These molecules in turn are replicated in a host cell to create clones of 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
