Definitions for "Hybridisation"
The process of forming a double stranded DNA molecule for instance between a nucleotide sequence (probe) and a target.
Binding of two single stranded nucleic acid strands by complementary base pairing.
Formation of a double-stranded nucleic acid molecule by complementary base pairing of two single strands from different sources. DNA-RNA hybrids are possible. Describes the process in which a nucleic acid probe is allowed to bind to and detect a complementary sequence on a blot.
(genetics) the act of mixing different species or varieties of animals or plants and thus to produce hybrids
See hybrid zone and hybrid. If new species are formed by hybridisation the hybrids must have higher fitness than the parental forms, they can achieve this by occupying new niches.
