2. Course; passage; lapse or process of time. I hope, in a short progression, you will be wholly immerged in the delices and joys of religion. (Evelyn)

3. (Science: mathematics) regular or proportional advance in increase or decrease of numbers; continued proportion, arithmetical, geometrical, or harmonic.

4. A regular succession of tones or chords; the movement of the parts in harmony; the order of the modulations in a piece from key to key. Arithmetical progression, a progression in which the terms increase or decrease by equal differences, as the numbers by the difference 2. Geometrical progression, a progression in which the terms increase or decrease by equal ratios, as the numbers by a continual multiplication or division by 2. Harmonic progression, a progression in which the terms are the reciprocals of quantities in arithmetical progression, as 1/2, 1/4, 1/6, 1/8, 1/10.

Origin: L. Progressio: cf. F. Progression.

miRNA-mediated competing endogenous RNAs (ceRNAs) networks

A Nature paper has described ceRNA interactions between HMGA2 and TGFBR3. They show that Hmga2 promotes lung cancer progression in mouse and human cells by operating as a competing endogenous RNA (ceRNA) for the let-7 microRNA (miRNA) family. reference: HMGA2 functions as a competing ...

Data analysis: DNA alignment HELP?

... working in plant systems designed experiments to determine whether plants also possessed CDKs that functioned as the catalysts for cell cycle progression. To isolate a cDNA encoding a CDK in maize, investigators aligned the predicted amino acid sequences of human cdc2, S. pombe cdc2, and S. ...
