1. Linear combination of @A00500@ on an atom. Hybrid orbitals are often used in organic chemistry to describe the bonding molecules containing tetrahedral ($$\mathrm{sp}^{3}$$), trigonal ($$\mathrm{sp}^{2}$$) and digonal ($$\mathrm{sp}$$) atoms.

2. The formation of @S05900@ duplexes of two DNA and/or RNA (complementary) strands via Watson-Crick @B00607@ used for locating or identifying @N04255@ sequences and to establish the effective transfer of @N04245@ material to a new @H02859@.
3. The formation of a novel diploid organism either by sexual processes or by @P04917@ fusion.
