ThesaurusAntonymsRelated WordsSynonymsLegend:
Noun1.hybridisation - (genetics) the act of mixing different species or varieties of animals or plants and thus to produce hybridshybridisation - (genetics) the act of mixing different species or varieties of animals or plants and thus to produce hybrids
mating, pairing, sexual union, union, coupling, conjugation - the act of pairing a male and female for reproductive purposes; "the casual couplings of adolescents"; "the mating of some species occurs only in the spring"
dihybrid cross - hybridization using two traits with two alleles each
monohybrid cross - hybridization using a single trait with two alleles (as in Mendel's experiments with garden peas)
reciprocal cross, reciprocal - hybridization involving a pair of crosses that reverse the sexes associated with each genotype
testcross, test-cross - a cross between an organism whose genotype for a certain trait is unknown and an organism that is homozygous recessive for that trait so the unknown genotype can be determined from that of the offspring
genetic science, genetics - the branch of biology that studies heredity and variation in organisms

The following rules and conclusions are chiefly drawn up from Gartner's admirable work on the hybridisation of plants.
As in hybridisation, so with grafting, the capacity is limited by systematic affinity, for no one has been able to graft trees together belonging to quite distinct families; and, on the other hand, closely allied species, and varieties of the same species, can usually, but not invariably, be grafted with ease.
HER-2 gene amplification by chromogenic in situ hybridisation (CISH) compared with fluorescence in situ hybridisation (FISH) in breast cancer--a study of two hundred cases.
Human impact on the environment has resulted in an increase in the interbreeding between species worldwide, which has given rise to an increase in hybridisation. This genetic mixing has the potential to threaten many species with extinction.
But in a natural world affected by human activity, ecologists and conservationists worry that hybridisation can upset ecological balances and undermine the survival of species involved in such a blend.

The Detroit News has reported citing Marchionne, 'The cycle of cars that will be launched from that point on will include by definition hybridisation.'
The fast speed of the kits is due to combining transposase-based library preparation with significant advancements in hybridisation chemistry, which markedly reduce hybridisation time to 90 minutes from 16 hours, while keeping high performance.
Dual-colour HER2/chromosome 17 chromogenic in situ hybridisation assay enables accurate assessment of HER2 genomic status in gastric cancer and has potential utility in HER2 testing of biopsy samples.
Washington, August 14 ( ANI ): In the last two years, a number of studies have suggested that modern humans and Neanderthals had at some point interbred, known as hybridisation.
Summary: TEHRAN (FNA)- New research raised questions about the theory that modern humans and Neanderthals at some point interbred, known as hybridisation.
