  • Weight gold, normally appears stamped on jewelry, indicating that it is solid gold. One would see something like '10K WGD' stamped to the inside of a ring.


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • "WGD" allows them to lock you out of the machine completely (well, lock you out of the entire winblows partition at least). doss_freak October 24, 2008 6: 42 AM PDT

  • (WGD) are often followed by a return to the diploid state, through DNA deletions and intra/interchromosomal rearrangements.

  • We use simple theoretical models and simulations to explore how a WGD accompanied by sequence deletions might affect the dosage balance often required among several gene products involved in regulatory processes.

  • This could be due to either gain of a miRNA binding site after the WGD or because one of the duplicated genes has escaped from being a miRNA target after the WGD (loss of miRNA binding site).

  • Of the 1,331 pairs of duplicate genes from the WGD, 41 genes (29 pairs) were computationally predicted to be miRNA targets.
