Repetitive dna

repetitive DNA

(Science: molecular biology) nucleotide sequences in dNA that are present in the genome as numerous copies. Originally identified by the C0t_ value derived from kinetic studies of dNA renaturation. These sequences are not thought to code for polypeptides. One class of repetitive DNA, termed highly repetitive DNA, is found as short sequences, 5-100 nucleotides, repeated thousands of times in a single long stretch. It typically comprises 3-10% of the genomic DNA and is predominantly satellite DNA. Another class, which comprises 25-40% of the DNA and termed moderately repetitive DNA, usually consists of sequences about 150 to 300 nucleotides in length dispersed evenly throughout the genome and includes alu sequences and transposons.

repetitive strain injury.

I would like to ask a question. Can RSI go away if the activity that causes it continues? i.e. Under what conditions is it possible to 'work through it, and when is rest the only option? Is there a danger of permanent damage if the activity is not stopped or seriously curtailed?

Re: Microbiology Investigation improvements?

... data supporting the use of these extracts in clinical application but you've said nothing re. how these "natural" antibitoics (that is repetitive) would be further qualified and used. You must (in order to appear competitive) consider these points. I'd be pretty honest here and not ...
