DNA hybridisation

/di ɛn eɪ haɪbrədaɪˈzeɪʃən/ (say dee en ay huybruhduy'zayshuhn)

noun Genetics
a technique for estimating the degree of relatedness of two organisms by taking duplex DNA from one source, heating it and allowing it to hybridise with a similarly treated duplex DNA (DNA-DNA hybridisation) or RNA (RNA-DNA hybridisation), the length of time taken to hybridise being the indicator of the degree of compatibility of the two strands.
Also, DNA hybridization.
