  CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Prose or Sequence
Sequence differs also in structure and melody from the hymn; for whilst all the strophes of a hymn are always constructed according to the same metre and rhythm and are sung to the same melody as the first strophe, it is the peculiarity of the
Sequence with the Alleluia and its versicle gradually disappeared, and as for some reason or other the desire for novelty arose, titles were adopted which seem to us rather far-fetched.
French Graduals almost all the sequences of the first epoch were supplanted by the later ones, whereas in Germany, together with the new ones a considerable number of those which are supposed to be Notker's remained in use as late as the fifteenth century.

  Sequence - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In mathematics, a sequence is a list of objects (or events) arranged in a "linear" fashion, such that the order of the members is well defined and significant.
A subsequence of a given sequence is a sequence formed from the given sequence by deleting some of the elements without disturbing the relative positions of the remaining elements.
If the terms of the sequence are a subset of a ordered set, then a monotonically increasing sequence is one for which each term is greater than or equal to the term before it; if each term is strictly greater than the one preceding it, the sequence is called strictly monotonically increasing.

 DNA sequence - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A DNA sequence or genetic sequence is a succession of letters representing the primary structure of a real or hypothetical DNA molecule or strand, with the capacity to carry information.
Typically the sequences are printed abutting one another without gaps, as in the sequence AAAGTCTGAC, going from 5' to 3' from left to right.
With regard to its biological function, which may depend on context, a sequence may be sense or anti-sense, and either coding or noncoding.

 Introduction to UML 2 Sequence Diagrams
UML sequence diagrams model the flow of logic within your system in a visual manner, enabling you both to document and validate your logic, and are commonly used for both analysis and design purposes.
Figure 1 depicts a UML sequence diagram for the Enroll in University use case, taking a system-level approach where the interactions between the actors and the system are show.
Messages are indicated on UML sequence diagrams as labeled arrows, when the source and target of a message is an object or class the label is the signature of the method invoked in response to the message.

 Fibonacci Sequence (PRIME)
This is an example of a recursive sequence, obeying the simple rule that to calculate the next term one simply sums the preceding two:
Notice that the rectangles which result at each stage are all roughly the same shape, that is, that the ratio of length to width seems to “settle down” as we build the pattern outward.
This sequence converges, that is, there is a single real number which the terms of this sequence approach more and more closely, eventually arbitrarily closely.

 CLHS: System Class SEQUENCE   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Sequences are ordered collections of objects, called the elements of the sequence.
The types vector and the type list are disjoint subtypes of type sequence, but are not necessarily an exhaustive partition of sequence.
When viewing a vector as a sequence, only the active elements of that vector are considered elements of the sequence; that is, sequence operations respect the fill pointer when given sequences represented as vectors.

 The DNA sequence and biological annotation of human chromosome[thinsp]1 : Nature
Patterns of sequence variation reveal signals of recent selection in specific genes that may contribute to human fitness, and also in regions where no function is evident.
Sequence annotation—the process of gathering all of the available information and relating it to the sequence assembly—is essential to develop our understanding of the information stored in human DNA.
By aligning the human contigs to the genome sequences of mouse, rat and chimpanzee, we estimated that the remaining nine gaps total 0.53 Mb (Supplementary Table S2).

 Accessing Sequence Records
Comparing a gene's mRNA sequence with its genomic sequence reveals a great deal, such as where nucleotides that code for the mRNA transcript begin and end, what segments of a gene actually code for amino acids, and how much of a gene's sequence is comprised of intron DNA.
Reference sequences should be used when available because they have been (or are in the process of being) reviewed by NCBI staff to ensure completeness and freedom from error and contamination.
Whenever a sequence is changed, the version number is increased and a new GI is assigned.

 genome.gov | Human Genome Sequence Quality Standards
The sequence should be no less than 99.99% accurate (an error rate of no more than 1/10,000); ambiguities (places where bases cannot be called unambiguously even though sequence reads are available) are to be counted as errors.
The sequence should ideally contain no gaps; gaps are regions for which no sequence reads can be obtained for biological reasons (as opposed to lack of interest on the part of the sequencing laboratory).
Sequence quality issues have also been discussed at two meetings of the Principal Investigators of the NHGRI-sponsored large-scale sequencing grants, which took place in July and December of 1997.

 genome.gov | Intellectual Property of Human Genomic Sequence
The HGP is an international research effort, begun in 1990, which has the scientific goals of generating maps of the human genome [1] and producing the complete sequence of the human DNA by the year 2005.
Although there are many other types of information that contribute to the understanding of human biology, e.g., DNA sequence of model organism genomes, in the end, the only source of definitive information about the human is the human sequence.
It is therefore NHGRI s intent that human genomic DNA sequence data, generated by the projects funded under RFA HG-95-005, should be released as rapidly as possible and placed in the public domain where it will be freely available.

 UofS Chemistry - NMR Booking Schedules
In the simple 1D pulse sequence shown in the hardware section, the preparation time consists of an interpulse delay which allows for the spin system to relax towards equilibrium.
The utility of this pulse sequence lies in its ability to refocus dephasing magetization and eliminating chemical shift effects from a pulse sequence.
Also, note that at the end of the pulse sequence the vectors will always be aligned along the same axis regardless of precession frequency or, what is equivalent, regardless of chemical shift.

 sequence on Encyclopedia.com   (Site not responding. Last check: )
A sequence may be either finite, e.g., 1, 2, 3, … 50, a sequence of 50 terms, or infinite, e.g., 1, 2, 3, … , which has no final term and thus continues indefinitely.
The terms of a sequence, when written as an indicated sum, form a series ; e.g., the sum of the sequence 1, 2, 3, … 50 is the series 1 + 2 + 3 + … + 50.

 Fibonacci sequence
A mathematical sequence consists of a series of numbers, usually starting at 0 or 1, all of which are derived from preceeding ones according to formal rules.
One of the most well-known sequences was one derived by the Italian medieval mathematician known today as Fibonacci.
In his Liber Abaci, published in 1202, he explained a simple sequence, where every number is the sum of the two numbers preceeding it.

 Oracle/PLSQL: Sequences (autonumber)
A sequence is an object in Oracle that is used to generate a number sequence.
The first sequence number that it would use is 1 and each subsequent number would increment by 1 (ie: 2,3,4,...}.
For example, if the last value used by the Oracle sequence was 100 and you would like to reset the sequence to serve 225 as the next value.

 PostgreSQL: Documentation: Manuals: PostgreSQL 7.4: CREATE SEQUENCE
Temporary sequences exist in a special schema, so a schema name may not be given when creating a temporary sequence.
The sequence name must be distinct from the name of any other sequence, table, index, or view in the same schema.
Furthermore, although multiple sessions are guaranteed to allocate distinct sequence values, the values may be generated out of sequence when all the sessions are considered.

 Sequence Formats
If two sequences are merged into one, then the new sequence will get a new Accession number and the Accession numbers of the merged sequences will be retained as 'secondary' Accession numbers.
The details of how many sequences are held in one file differs between formats, but they either allow many sequences to be concatenated one after the other, or they hold the sequences together in some sort of aligned set of sequences.
An attempt to concatenate several sequences in one file leaves the results as a mess that makes it impossible to decide where the sequences start and end or what is annotation and what is sequence.

 A Pattern-Language Sequence for Building a Residential College
But if you wish to construct a complex many-featured thing from scratch you must not only know the components that need to be present in the final structure, you must also know the correct embryological sequence—the set of assembly rules—for putting the components and sub-components together in the first place.
Alexander calls these assembly rules “generative sequences”: they tell you what decisions you have to make in what order during a construction process.
In order to understand the generative sequence you do need to have a picture in your mind of the final structure of your college and the components that will make it up, and so you should first read at least the “How To Build a Residential College” summary page.
