  Genomics and Its Impact on Science and Society: 2003 Primer
A subunit of DNA or RNA consisting of a nitrogenous base (adenine, guanine, thymine, or cytosine in DNA; adenine, guanine, uracil, or cytosine in RNA), a phosphate molecule, and a sugar molecule (deoxyribose in DNA and ribose in RNA).
A method for amplifying a DNA base sequence using a heat-stable polymerase and two 20-base primers, one complementary to the (+) strand at one end of the sequence to be amplified and one complementary to the (-) strand at the other end.
Short (200 to 500 base pairs) DNA sequence that has a single occurrence in the human genome and whose location and base sequence are known.

 base pair
Two bases which form a "rung" of the DNA ladder.
A DNA nucleotide is made of a molecule of sugar, a molecule of phosphoric acid, and a molecule called a base.
In base pairing, adenine always pairs with thymine, and guanine always pairs with cytosine; in each case, the pairing involves a purine and a pyrimidine.

 Base pair - EvoWiki   (Site not responding. Last check: )
A base pair refers to two organic bases held together by weak hydrogen bonds across strands of DNA or RNA.
Purines (represented by adenine and guanine) always pair with pyrimidines (represented by cytosine, thymine and in the case of RNA, uracil).
The length of DNA strands are typically measured by their number of base pairs.

 genetics terms
Base pair (bp): Two nitrogenous bases (adenine and thymine or guanine and cytosine) held together by weak bonds.
Nucleotide: A subunit of DNA or RNA consisting of a nitrogenous base (adenine, guanine, thymine, or cytosine in DNA; adenine, guanine, uracil, or cytosine in RNA), a phosphate molecule, and a sugar molecule (deoxyribose in DNA and ribose in RNA).
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR): A method for amplifying a DNA base sequence using a heat- stable polymerase and two 20- base primers, one complementary to the (+)- strand at one end of the sequence to be amplified and the other complementary to the (-)- strand at the other end.

 EvolvingCode.net - Glossary for synthetic gene design
Base pair (bp): A pair of complementary nitrogenous bases in a DNA molecule--adenine-thymine and guanine-cytosine.
The index uses a reference set of highly expressed genes from a specific genome to assess the relative merits of each codon, and thus allows calculation of a score for any gene relative to that genome (CAI is calculated from the frequency of use of all codons in that gene).
PCR (Polymerase chain reaction): A method for amplifying a DNA base sequence (comprising two strands, '+' and '-'), using a heat- stable polymerase enzyme and two 20-base primers, one complementary to the (+)-strand at one end of the sequence to be amplified and the other complementary to the (-)-strand at the other end.

 Nucleic acid hydration
On melting, about four water molecules per base pair are released in spite of extra hydration sites being released by the previously hydrogen-bonded base pairing [707], thus confirming the importance of this cooperative nature of the water binding within the grooves.
C base pairing produces a wider minor groove with more extensive primary hydration, due in part to the 50% greater hydration sites.
C base pairs (compared with A=T base pairs) on changing from B-DNA to A-DNA is clearly responsible for the tendency of G

[This lecture is based on interviews with 150 of the world’s top scientists, many of them Nobel Laureates or directors of major scientific laboratories, about their conception of the science of the next 20 to 50 years.
This means that the cost of sequencing a DNA base pair went down from $5 per base pair to a few cents today.

Any # given key in %basePlusMorphPairs is a potential morpheme (either a base # morpheme or an inflection morpheme.) When any first and # second keys are combined then the result is a word in the vocabulary, # namely %bagOfWords.
Also stored in # %siblingMorphPairs{pair} are the base morphemes which can take the pair.
Here never remove small clusters # because either they were removed at the end of filterSiblingMorphPairs() or else they # arn't supposed to be removed.
