(17) The indication of the DNA probe method would be considered in the four cases as follows, 1. necessity of the special equipment to isolate the pathogen, 2. necessity of the long period to isolate the pathogen, 3. existence of the cross reaction among the pathogen and relative organisms in the immunological procedure, 4. existence of the difficulty to identify the species of the pathogen by the ordinary procedure.
(18) Slight cross-reactivity was apparent when crude preparations of cellular or culture filtrate antigens, used in this laboratory to detect antibodies to Candida albicans, Coccidioides immitis and Cryptococcus neoformans, were probed with hyperimmune rabbit antisera to A. fumigatus.
(19) The results, together with the known geometry of the enzyme, indicate that active site probes in the dodecamer are widely separated and that energy transfer occurs from a single donor to two or three acceptors on adjacent subunits.
(20) The availability of locus-specific probes should significantly expand the role of minisatellite markers in population biology.

(v. t.) To doubt of; to regard with incredulity.
(v. t.) To write " query" (qu., qy., or ?) against, as a doubtful spelling, or sense, in a proof. See Quaere.

(6) The almost-Orwellian technology that enables the government to store and analyze the phone metadata of every telephone user in the United States is unlike anything that could have been conceived in 1979 [...] I cannot imagine a more "indiscriminate" and "arbitrary invasion" than this systematic and high-tech collection and retention of personal data on virtually every single citizen for purposes of querying and analyzing it without prior judicial approval.
(7) The smoking-specific item "craving" reflected this pattern, though in attenuated form, suggesting that the observed exacerbation of withdrawal symptomatology was not simply due to generalized dysphoria, as queried in both instruments.

(10) The BLASTx program, implemented on the National Center for Biotechnology Information server, allows a sensitive search of all putative translations of a nucleotide query sequence against all known proteins in a matter of seconds.
(11) It is incredibly difficult to detect manufactured quotes – the voices of people on the street who cannot later be verified, for example – which can go unquestioned without a reason to draw the attention of an editor to query them.

(15) Newly admitted patients from two comprehensive drug abuse programs in the Baltimore area were queried concerning frequency of illicit methadone use and availability of illicit methadone for a 3-month period prior to their admission.
(16) The replication becomes impossible to hold back because any time a web server gains a new file and is queried by the search engines' "spiders" – which go out looking to see what has changed on the web – the cache of the web is updated, with the location of the new file.
