Example sentences for: derive

How can you use “derive” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • The C-terminus strong conservation leads to the assumption that all the related genes derive by duplication events from a common ancestor, but the identity of this ancestral gene and the date of expansion can only be hypothesized.

  • Those who would derive the expression directly from the peg tankard sense are thus not correct, for, while that attribution might have been the original source, the expression itself is traceable only to a metaphor once removed from the tankard.

  • Others violate them on special occasions to derive an emotional release.

  • Both words derive from the Latin nātālis birth.

  • The most straightforward version of this type of analysis, to which we hereinafter refer to as 'genome-tree' building, involves scaling-up the traditional tree-building approach and analyzing the phylogenetic trees for multiple gene families (in principle, all families represented in many genomes), in an attempt to derive a consensus, 'organismal' phylogeny [ 3 4 5 ] . However, because of the wide spread of horizontal gene transfer and lineage-specific gene loss, at least in the prokaryotic world, comparison of trees for different families and consensus derivation may become highly problematic [ 6 7 ] . Probably due to all these problems, a pessimistic conclusion has been reached that prokaryotic phylogeny might not be reconstructable from protein sequences, at least with current phylogenetic methods [ 4 ] .
