1. General Term: cDNA
cDNA Strong, cloned copies of otherwise fragile mRNA - the essential messenger
element of the genes in the DNA which help in the coding of proteins.

analyzable copies he called cDNAs .
By sequencing only the cDNAs he could be assured that he was gaining
knowledge of actual genes; and by focusing the research this way
he brought the price of sequencing down dramatically. By sequencing

3. Genetics Topic: Should Genes Be Patented?
cDNAs a natural phenomenon or a human invention? The cDNA does
not occur naturally, and is not a gene per se. Rather, it is a
copy version of a gene with the introns edited out. It is coded
into messenger RNA by the

the patenting of cDNAs because it would impede the free
flow of scientific information. HUGO is worried that the
patenting of partial and uncharacterized cDNA sequences will reward
those who make routine discoveries, but penalize

5. General Term: Restriction Enzyme
from this process is called cDNA (copy DNA) and is
much more stable than mRNA.

6. General Term: Expressed Sequence Tag
part of a gene,
made from cDNA , which can be used to fish the rest of the gene out of the
chromosome , by matching base pairs with part of the gene. The EST can be
radioactively labeled in order to locate it in a larger segment of DNA .
