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-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.
