* The noun: the order in which subunits appear in a chain, such as amino acid s in a polypeptide or nucleotide base s in a DNA or RNA molecule. * The verb: To find out in what order the subunits appear in the chain.

2. Sequence hypothesis
Francis Crick's seminal concept that genetic information exists as a linear DNA code; DNA and protein sequence are colinear.

3. Sequence tagged site (STS)
Short (200 to 500 base pair s) DNA sequence that has a single occurrence in the human genome and whose location and base sequence are known. Detectable by PCR , STSs are useful for localizing and orienting the mapping and sequence data reported from many different laboratories and serve as landmarks on the developing physical map of the human genome. Expressed sequence tags (ESTs) are STSs derived from cDNAs.
