molecular hybridization The artificial synthesis of double strands of polynucleotide molecules by binding together complementary strands of RNA and/or DNA. Such techniques permit the estimation of genetic similarity between DNA/DNA, DNA/RNA, and RNA/RNA polynucleotide chains. See COMPLEMENTARY BASE PAIRING.
