The act of distinguishing or describing a thing, by giving its different, or specific difference; exact definition or determination
The gradual formation or production of organs or parts by a process of evolution or development, as when the seed develops the root and the stem, the initial stem develops the leaf, branches, and flower buds; or in animal life, when the germ evolves the digestive and other organs and members, or when the animals as they advance in organization acquire special organs for specific purposes
(Reklam) Creation or demonstration of unique characteristics in a company's products or brands compared to those of its competitors
Method of obtaining the mathematical derivative of (This is part of calculus, a high-level math )
A general term used to describe the whole range of strategies, which can be used to ensure that children's needs are met appropriately (Not just high achievers )
The process by which stem cells transform from cells without a specific structural or functional characteristics into functional cells of a single blood cell line The process of differentiation of stem cells forms the red blood cells, platelets, neutrophils, monocytes, eosinophils, basophils and lymphocytes
The supposed act or tendency in being of every kind, whether organic or inorganic, to assume or produce a more complex structure or functions
the ability to "tell the difference" between one person and another, one object and another It indicates a person is sane As soon as he begins to confuse his wife with his mother, or his coat with his father’s coat, he is on the road toward insanity
The process by which single cells grow into particular forms of specialized tissue (e g , root, stem, or leaf) (Source: Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center, 1990)
the process cells undergo as they mature into normal cells Differentiated cells have distinctive characteristics, perform specific functions, and are less likely to divide Breast cancer originates in cells that are not differentiated
Divergence in structure and function of cells as they become specialized during a multicellular organism's development; depends on the control of gene expression (cell differentiation)
the separation of materials in a liquid medium under the influence of gravity such that the denser material collects at the core while the less dense material rises to the surface
The process of biochemical and structural changes by which cells become specialized in form and function
The process of adapting the curriculum according to the ability level of the student is called Differentiation It is specifically geared to content, process, or product Any changes in these areas constitute some type of adaptation or differentiation
Representation in terms of time rate of change For example, differentiating velocity yields acceleration In a DSA, differentiation is performed by multiplication by jw, where w is frequency multiplied by 2Ã¾ (Differentiation can also be used to convert displacement to velocity )
in the context of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change refers to differing national circumstances that might imply differing obligations to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases It can refer to North-South distinctions, or to differences within the rich Annex 1 countries The differences can reflect population, income, economic composition, or energy endowment
The degree to which a tumour resembles normal tissue In general, the closer the resemblance, the better the prognosis Well differentiated tumours closely resemble normal tissue
Representation in terms of time rate of change Example: differentiating velocity yields acceleration In a computer, this is accomplished by multiplying the velocity signal by jw, where w is frequency multiplied by 2p
Mathematical process of finding the derivative of a function. Defined abstractly as a process involving limits, in practice it may be done using algebraic manipulations that rely on three basic formulas and four rules of operation. The formulas are: (1) the derivative of x^n is nx^n -1, (2) the derivative of sin x is cos x, and (3) the derivative of the exponential function e^x is itself. The rules are: (1) (af + bg) = af + bg, (2) (fg) = fg + gf, (3) (f/g) = (gf -fg)/g^2, and (4) (f(g)) = f(g)g, where a and b are constants, f and g are functions, and a prime () indicates the derivative. The last formula is called the chain rule. The derivation and exploration of these formulas and rules is the subject of differential calculus. See also integration
a genetic clock program of cellular development with time Cells begin with the ability to turn into many different tissue types; through the process of differentiation, they become more and more specialized in function and generally retain the properties of cells of a specific type of tissue
a term used in the Framework Convention on Climate Change, differentiation refers to the setting of different emissions reduction targets and timetables for individual countries rather than the setting of one flat rate for all countries in order to factor in countries' circumstances climate, size, population growth and economy, for example The targets set under the Kyoto Protocol are differentiated (See also Kyoto Protocol )
Differentiation, in embryology, is the process in embryonic development during which unspecialized cells or tissues become specialized for particular functions Differentiation, in oncology, is the degree of similarity or difference of tumor cells to the structure of the organ from which the tumor arose In plant physiology, this refers to the change of a relatively unspecialized cell to a more specialized cell
An aspect of development that involves the formation of different types of cells, tissues, and organs through the processes of specific regulation of gene expression
(biology) the structural adaptation of some body part for a particular function; "cell differentiation in the developing embryo"
a discrimination between things as different and distinct; "it is necessary to make a distinction between love and infatuation"
The modification of a cell in terms of structure and/or function occurring during the course of development
{i} act of distinguishing; discrimination; act of changing; transforming of a function into its derivative (Mathematics)
Development toward a more mature state, a process changing a relatively unspecialized cell to a more specialized cell
the mathematical process of obtaining the derivative of a function a discrimination between things as different and distinct; "it is necessary to make a distinction between love and infatuation
A quality or feature that differentiates one thing from another makes the two things different. distinctive policies that differentiate them from the other parties. = distinguish + differentiation dif·fer·en·tia·tion The differentiation between the two product ranges will increase
To express the specific difference of; to describe the properties of (a thing) whereby it is differenced from another of the same class; to discriminate
If you differentiate between things or if you differentiate one thing from another, you recognize or show the difference between them. A child may not differentiate between his imagination and the real world At this age your baby cannot differentiate one person from another. = distinguish
become distinct and acquire a different character become different during development; "cells differentiate" calculate a derivative; take the derivative
To distinguish or mark by a specific difference; to effect a difference in, as regards classification; to develop differential characteristics in; to specialize; to desynonymize
