repulsion

an arrangement in a double heterozygote where a WILD TYPE allele of one gene is adjacent to a mutant allele of another gene on the same HOMOLOGOUS CHROMOSOME. Such an arrangement of linked genes usually is referred to as in repulsion. Compare COUPLING.

In PGA, cattle and medium-sized ungulates showed significant attraction at short distances (<400 m); a short stint of repulsion was exhibited between approximately 700 m and 1000 m followed by attraction behavior up to 5000 m (Figure 6(c)).
The latter means that the inner non-Newtonian gravitational force of repulsion is so strong near the surface of a neutron star or a quazar that photons emitted from its surface into the cosmos bear a high redshift independent on the distance from the observer.
In practical application, the components of the repulsion forces [F.sub.ob] along the X and Y direction are calculated, respectively, in order to facilitate the fusion with the intention force.
The sensing nodes generate repulsion factors in the opposition direction for node q;.
[I.sub.2] = gravity and repulsion without the same carrier.
The basic interactions that compete in the phenomenon of colloidal stability are the short-range, van der Waals attraction, and long-range electrostatic repulsion. Those are the essential ingredients of the so-called DLVO theory (after Derjaguin, Landau, Verwey, and Overbeek), (13) which has met with considerable success.
Suppose there are two agents to left of agent A at a distance of 100 that have their repulsive beacon on and A's repulsion range is p = 80.
Reference [9] puts forward anew CA model which introduced the friction, and the repulsion considering the mutual function of people-people and people-environment.
That's disgusting; unraveling the mysteries of repulsion.
In the repulsion phase, the horizontal and vertical velocities are altered and the angular momentum is reduced.
In his Introduction he describes, for example, witnessing a scene of mesmerized repulsion for the malformed babies kept in jars in the Hunterian Museum in London; his young son's fascination with a hydrocephalic woman in Shanghai; how his brother has been recently involved in the legal defence of a child murderer; and his own visit to Pol Pot's torture chambers in Cambodia.
LONDON/ISLAMABAD, March 18, 2011 (Balochistan Times): PML-N has spread rumours of heart surgery of Mian Nawaz Sharif under a plan to avoid popular repulsion in and outside the country.
