... dissipation, or hysteresis, between the loading and unloading of the tissue during mechanical tests. Some soft tissues can be preconditioned by repetitive
cyclic loading to the extent where the stress-strain curves for the loading and unloading portions of the tests nearly overlap.
... in microscopy images of chromosomes.
In most eukaryotes, the centromere has no defined DNA sequence . It typically consists of large arrays of repetitive
DNA where the sequence within individual repeat elements is similar but not identical. In humans, the centromeric repeat unit is called ...
... distinguished into two types:
Constitutive heterochromatin , which is never expressed. It is located around the centromere and usually contains repetitive
Facultative heterochromatin , which is sometimes expressed.

... to identify a possible suspect, a process called DNA profiling or genetic fingerprinting. In DNA profiling the relative lengths of sections of repetitive
DNA, such as short tandom repeats and minisatellites are compared. DNA profiling was developed in 1984 English geneticist Alec Jeffries , and ...
... its intelligent acts. He argued that if there is an inner being inside the brain that could steer its own thoughts then this would lead to an absurd repetitive
cycle or 'regress':
"According to the legend, whenever an agent does anything intelligently, his act is preceded and steered by another internal ...
