- A phenotypic trait produced by two or more genes working together.
- A molecule usually composed of 25 or fewer nucleotides; used as a DNA synthesis primer.
- A gene, one or more forms of which is associated with cancer. Many oncogenes are involved, directly or indirectly, in controlling the rate of cell growth.
Open reading frame (ORF)
- The sequence of DNA or RNA located between the start-code sequence (initiation codon) and the stop-code sequence (termination codon).
A stretch of DNA that when translated into an amino acid sequence doesn’t contain an internal stop codon. An ORF can be evidence
that a DNA sequence is part of a gene.
- A set of genes transcribed under the control of an operator gene.
