template

 [tem´plāt]
a pattern or mold. In dentistry, a curved or flat plate used as an aid in setting teeth for a denture. In theoretical immunology, an antigen that determines the configuration of combining (antigen-binding) sites of antibody molecules. In genetics, a strand of DNA which specifies the synthesis of a complementary strand of RNA (messenger RNA, ribosomal RNA, or transfer RNA); mRNA in turn serves as a template for the synthesis of nucleic acids or proteins.

3. In dentistry, a curved or flat plate used as an aid in setting teeth.
4. An outline used to trace teeth, bones, or soft tissue to standardize their form.
