  • double helix
  • In molecular biology, the term double helix refers to the structure formed by double-stranded molecules of nucleic acids such as DNA. (wikipedia.org)
  • Melting is the process by which the interactions between the strands of the double helix are broken, separating the two nucleic acid strands. (wikipedia.org)
  • species
  • However, the DNA-DNA hybridization values (8-58%) and ribotyping analysis both enabled these strains to be differentiated from related Cupriavidus species with validly published names. (springer.com)
  • Overall genetic relatedness of two species can be determined by hybridizing segments of their DNA (DNA-DNA hybridization). (wikipedia.org)
  • hybridization Cross-breeding of plants or animals between different species to produce offspring that differ in genetically determined traits. (encyclopedia.com)
  • On a genomic scale, the method has been used by researchers to estimate the genetic distance between two species, a process known as DNA-DNA hybridization. (wikipedia.org)
  • occur
  • Nucleic acids act as the genetic material of cells and occur as either DNA or RNA . (thefreedictionary.com)
  • or (B) fusion of cells, including protoplast fusion, or hybridization techniques that overcome natural physiological, reproductive or recombination barriers, where the donor cells or protoplasts do not fall within the same taxonomic group, in a way that does not occur by natural multiplication or natural recombination.
