nucleotide sequence

nucleotide sequence

the order of nucleotides in DNA or RNA.

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.
