base sequence

The order of nucleotide bases—A, T, G, C—in a sequence of DNA, which determines primary structure of the proteins encoded by that DNA.

nucleotide sequence

or

base sequence

the order of NUCLEOTIDES in a NUCLEIC ACID MOLECULE. The nucleotide sequence within a gene determines the AMINO ACID sequence of a PROTEIN product or the RIBONUCLEOTIDE sequence of an RNA product. Nucleotide sequences of DNA are determined by DNA SEQUENCING techniques.
