Recombinant DNA Molecules

Science / Genetics / Recombinant DNA Molecules: A combination of dna molecules of different origin that are joined using recombinant dna technologies.

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

Recombinant Clones

Science / Genetics / Recombinant Clones: Clones containing recombinant dna molecules. See recombinant dna technologies. 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

Macromolecules

Science / Biology / Macromolecules: Large molecules made up of many small organic molecules that are often referred to as monomers; e.g., carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids. Macromolecules are polymers of monomers. 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
