TermDefinition
Codis is the generic term used to describe the FBI’s program of support for criminal justice DNA databases as well as the software used to run these databases.
RFLP restriction fragment length polymorphism: any variation in DNA between individuals revealed by restriction enzymes that cut DNA into fragments of different lengths in consequence of such variations.
Sticky Ends A fragment of DNA (often produced by a staggered cut on the DNA using restriction enzymes) in which the terminal portion has a stretch of unpaired nucleotides, and the strands are not of the same length.
DNA Fingerprinting The fingerprints are a bar-code like occurrence which can distinguish the uniqueness of one individual from another. This can be used to determine the presence of someone at a particular time by matching their fingerprints at the scene.
Cleave
DNA A double-stranded nucleic acid that contains the genetic information for cell growth, division, and function.
Comb
Restriction Enzyme An enzyme that catalyzes the cleavage of DNA at restriction sites, producing small fragments used for gene splicing in recombinant DNA technology and for chromosome mapping.
Exclusion
Hybridization The act or process of mating organisms of different varieties or species to create a hybrid.
VNTR Variable number of tandem repeats; is a polimorfism where alleles of a chromosome are differents for number of repetitions.
Nucleotides The basic building block of nucleic acids, such as DNA and RNA. It is an organic compound made up of nitrogenous base, a sugar, and a phosphate group.
Gel Lanes Different vertical DNA columns made during the process of Electrophoresis.
DNA Fragments Splitting the DNA into shorter pieces by endonucleolytic DNA CLEAVAGE at multiple sites. It includes the internucleosomal DNA fragmentation, which along with chromatin condensation, are considered to be the hallmarks of APOPTOSIS.
Palindrome In genetics, a DNA or RNA sequence that reads the same in both directions. The sites of many restriction enzymes that cut (restrict) DNA are palindromes.
Wells
STR A pattern in DNA where two or more nucleotides are repeated and the repeated sequences are directly adjacent to each other, used in determining genetic profiles to identify an individual.
Electric Field a property of a patch of space which causes the acceleration of electric charges located at that patch of space.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
