A distinct variation of an existing species or variety that is raised from seeds

Strain

In plants a group of individuals of a common origin, usually a more narrowly defined group than a cultivar. For pathogens, the descendants of a single isolation in pure culture; an isolate. Also a group of similar isolates; a race. In plant viruses: a group of virus isolates having most of their antigens in common.

strain

relative deformation of a material, for example, repair tissue. Motion at the fracture site in itself is not the important feature, but the resulting relative deformation, which is called strain (dL/L), of the healing tissues. As strain is a ratio (displacement of fragments divided by width of fracture gap), very high levels of strain may be presen...

strain

one type of HIV. HIV is so heterogeneous, no two isolates are exactly the same. When HIV is isolated from an individual, and worked on in the lab, it is given its own unique identifier, or strain name (i.e., MN, LAI).

Strain

Change per unit length in a linear dimension of a part or specimen, usually expressed in % Strain, as used with most mechanical tests, is based on original length of the specimen. True or natural strain is based on instantaneous length, and is equal to: ln X l lo , where l is instantaneous length and lo is original length of the specimen. Shear str...

Strain

When a structure or component is subjected to stress individual fibres or elements in the material either lengthen or shorten. Strain is a measure of how much these elements extend or contract, and is defined as the change in length divided by the original length of the element. Strains can be defined at a point if the strained element is considere...

strain

Strain is present in a molecular entity or transition structure if the energy is enhanced because of unfavourable bond lengths, bond angles, or dihedral angles ('torsional strain') relative to a standard. It is quantitatively defined as the standard enthalpy of a structure relative to a strainless structure (real or hypothetical) made up from the s...
