replication

 [rep″lĭ-ka´shun]
1. a turning back of a part so as to form a duplication.
2. repetition of an experiment to ensure accuracy.
3. the process of duplicating or reproducing, as replication of an exact copy of a polynucleotide strand of DNA or RNA.

rep·li·ca·tion

(rep'li-kā'shŭn),
1. The execution of an experiment or study more than once so as to confirm the original findings, increase precision, and obtain a closer estimate of sampling error.
2. Autoreproduction or duplication, as in mitosis or cellular biology.
3. DNA-directed DNA synthesis.
[L. replicatio, a reply, fr. replico, pp. -atus, to fold back]
