Clone

A collection of genetically identical cells or organisms derived asexually from a common ancestor eg. a group of plants originating by vegetative propagation from a single plant

clone

(Variation and inheritance) an organism which is genetically identical to another

clone

(Learning Modules / Biology / DNA / Glossary) An individual produced by asexual reproduction. Although common in many living things, cloning is rare in animals and very rare in higher species. Identical twins are the only natural clones in mammals, producing clones in any other way is a technically complex process, with very low success rates. Potentially, clones could be very useful in agriculture e.g. the cloning of a prize dairy cow, but is fraught with ethical concerns when applied to humans, where practical applications are rather more limited....

One of a group of identical plants all raised from a single parent by means of vegetative propagation

Clone

A clone is a population of genetically identical cells produced from a common ancestor. Sometimes, 'clone' is also used for a number of recombinant DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) molecules all carrying the same inserted sequence.

clone

(klon) 1.A group of cells derived from a single parent cell by mitotic cell division; since reproduction is asexual, the descendants of the parent cell are genetically identical. 2. A term used to refer to cells as separate individuals(as in white blood cells) rather than as part of a growing organ.

Clone

[algebra] In universal algebra, a clone is a set C of finitary operations on a set A such that Given an algebra in a signature σ, the set of operations on its carrier definable by a σ-term (the term functions) is a clone. Conversely, every clone can be realized as the clone of term functions in a suitable algebra. If A and B are algebras ...

[B-cell biology] The process of immunological B-cell maturation involves transformation from an undifferentiated B cell to one that secretes antibodies with particular specificity.

Clone

[cell biology] A clone is a group of identical cells that share a common ancestry, meaning they are derived from the same cell. Clonality implies the state of a cell or a substance being derived from one source or the other. Thus there are terms like polyclonal--derived from many clones; oligoclonal--derived from a few clones; and, monoclon...

[Java method] clone is a method in the Java programming language for object duplication. In Java, objects are manipulated through reference variables, and there is no operator for copying an object—the assignment operator duplicates the reference, not the object. The clone method provides this missing functionality. == Overview == Classes...
