Dna sequence

the order of nucleotide bases in the dna molecule;

a succession of nucleotides in a dna molecule or strand; a succession of any number of nucleotides greater than four is liable to be called a sequence. With regard to its biological function, which may depend on context, a sequence may be sense or anti-sense, and either coding or noncoding. Dna sequences can also contain "junk DNA".
