Bijection

In mathematics, a bijection, bijective function or one-to-one correspondence is a function between the elements of two sets, where every element of one set is paired with exactly one element of the other set, and every element of the other set is paired with exactly one element of the first set.

Comparative genomics

Comparative genomics is a field of biological research in which the genomic features of different organisms are compared.

Curve

In mathematics, a curve (also called a curved line in older texts) is, generally speaking, an object similar to a line but which is not required to be straight.

DNA

Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) is a molecule that carries most of the genetic instructions used in the development, functioning and reproduction of all known living organisms and many viruses.

Gene prediction

In computational biology gene prediction or gene finding refers to the process of identifying the regions of genomic DNA that encode genes.

Genome

In modern molecular biology and genetics, the genome is the genetic material of an organism.

Genomic island

A genomic island (GI) is part of a genome that has evidence of horizontal origins.

Isochore (genetics)

In genetics, an isochore is a large region of DNA (greater than 300 kb) with a high degree uniformity in guanine (G) and cytosine (C): G- C and C-G (collectively GC content).

Origin of replication

The origin of replication (also called the replication origin) is a particular sequence in a genome at which replication is initiated.

Sequence analysis

In bioinformatics, sequence analysis is the process of subjecting a DNA, RNA or peptide sequence to any of a wide range of analytical methods to understand its features, function, structure, or evolution.

Three-dimensional space (mathematics)

Three-dimensional space (also: tri-dimensional space) is a geometric three-parameter model of the physical universe (without considering time) in which all known matter exists.
