Medical Definition of Nucleic acid hybridization

1. Widely used technique which exploits the ability of complementary sequences in single-stranded dnas or rnas to pair with each other to form a double helix. Hybridization can take place between two complimentary DNA sequences, between a single-stranded DNA and a complementary RNA, or between two RNA sequences. The technique is used to detect and isolate specific sequences, measure homology, or define other characteristics of one or both strands.
