Base pair - Wikipedia
A kilobase (kb) is a unit of measurement in molecular biology equal to 1000 base pairs of DNA or RNA. The total amount of related DNA base pairs on Earth is estimated at 5.0 × 10 37 and weighs 50 billion tonnes. In comparison, the total mass of the biosphere has been estimated to be as much as 4 TtC (trillion tons of carbon).
Kilobase | Definition of Kilobase by Merriam-Webster
Kilobase definition is - a unit of measure of the length of a nucleic-acid chain that equals one thousand base pairs.
Kilobase | definition of kilobase by Medical dictionary
kilobase A unit of measurement of the length of a DNA or RNA sequence equal to 1000 base pairs of DNA or 1000 bases of RNA. kilobase (kb) 1000 BASES of DNA or RNA, used as a unit of length of single-stranded molecules.The kilobase is often also used as the unit of length for double-stranded molecules, though these should more correctly be measured in kilobase pairs (kbp).

What Is a Kilobase? - wiseGEEK
A kilobase is a numbering measurement used in the field of genetics.As a base is one building block of genetic information, and every organism contains many bases, 1,000 bases is a common number to use when discussing how many bases an organism's genetic library contains.
A 3D Map of the Human Genome at Kilobase Resolution ...
The kilobase-scale maps reported here allow the physical properties of genome folding to be probed at much higher resolution. We will report such studies elsewhere. Just as loops bring distant DNA loci into close spatial proximity, we find that they bring disparate aspects of DNA biology—domains, compartments, chromatin marks, and genetic ...
Kilobase vs Megabase - What's the difference? | WikiDiff
Megabase is a related term of kilobase. Kilobase is a related term of megabase. As nouns the difference between kilobase and megabase is that kilobase is a length of , one thousand on each strand while megabase is a length of double-stranded dna containing two million nucleotides, one million on each strand.
RPKM, FPKM and TPM, clearly explained | RNA-Seq Blog
from StatQuest It used to be when you did RNA-seq, you reported your results in RPKM (Reads Per Kilobase Million) or FPKM (Fragments Per Kilobase Million). However, TPM (Transcripts Per Kilobase Million) is now becoming quite popular. Since there seems to be a lot of confusion about these terms, I thought I'd use a StatQuest to clear everything up.
Gene expression units explained: RPM, RPKM, FPKM and TPM
In RNA-seq gene expression data analysis, we come across various expression units such as RPM, RPKM, FPKM and raw reads counts. Most of the times it's difficult to understand basic underlying methodology to calculate these units from mapped sequence data.
