One of two or more DNA or RNA molecules that are covalently joined (end to end) in the same orientation.

concatemer

a composite DNA MOLECULE, comprising two or more identical molecules joined together. Often BACTERIOPHAGE GENOMES are presented as concatemers for packaging into CAPSIDS during phage aassembly

However, deletions extending into regions adjacent to the transgene concatemer are not detected, as two intact cos sites are required for the packaging of a single [lambda] vector.
Concatemer sequences were analyzed by using SAGE software (version 4.
Briefly, DNA fragments were repaired to blunt-ended DNA by fill-in and exonuclease after A-tailing was conducted to prevent the formation of adapters, dimers, and concatemers.
Lambda DNA concatemers (New England BioLabs) were used as molecular size markers.
In addition, the PCR products were also analyzed by agarose gel electrophoresis to test for concatemers and the correct product size of 425 bp.
