Science / Geology / Peat: An accumulation of unconsolidated plant debris that if buried and preserved could become coal. Special conditions are required to accumulate and preserve plant materials. These conditions are most often found in a marsh or swamp where water cover prevents oxidation and attack by most organisms.
Science / Genetics / Repeat Sequences: The length of a nucleotide sequence that is repeated in a tandem cluster. MORE
Technology / Radar / Radar Repeater: A unit which duplicates the ppi display at a location remote from the main radar indicator installation. Also called ppi repeater, remote ppi. MORE
Science / Genetics / Variable Number Tandem Repeats (VNTR): Any gene whose alleles contain different numbers of tandemly repeated oligonucleotide sequences. MORE
Technology / Cell Phones / Repeater: Device that receives a radio signal, amplifies it and retransmits it in a new direction. Used in wireless networks to extend the range of base station signals, expanding coverage more economically tha MORE
Science / Genetics / Tandem Repeat Sequences: Multiple copies of the same base sequence on a chromosome: used as markers in physical mapping. MORE
