Definitions for "Vector"
a plasmid, virus, or other vehicle for carrying a DNA sequence into the cells of another species; also a method (such as genetically engineered viruses or bacteria) of delivering genetic material to cells.
An insect or any living carrier that transports an infectious agent from an infected individual or its wastes to a susceptible individual or its food or immediate surroundings.
In epidemiology, this refers to an agent, usually insect or animal, able to carry pathogens from one organism to another. In genetics, this is a genetic alement able to incorporate DNA and be replicated in a cell.
A directed quantity, as a straight line, a force, or a velocity. Vectors are said to be equal when their directions are the same and their magnitudes equal. Cf. Scalar.
A datum with more than one component. In physics, velocity has a direction and a magnitude. In computing, often refers to a block of data (as in Vector Processor) which might be pixels.
Any quantity, such as force velocity, or acceleration, which has both magnitude and direction at each point in space, as opposed to scalar which has magnitude only. Such a quantity may be represented geometrically by an arrow of length proportional to its magnitude, pointing in the assigned direction.
Same as Radius vector.
A technology whereby an image is drawn using mathematically calculated control points and smooth lines. This is an analog technology, and there are hypothetically an infinite number of possible image shapes possible. Vector technologies are prone to failure and rumored to represent an increased risk of electromagnetic radiation exposure.

The Reebok logo: two diagonal stripes going from left-to-right and one going from right-to-left. (In my opinion, the Reebok logo has the appearance of parts of the ASICS logo and parts of the Puma logo. The left-to-right portion looks like it was made with a Puma sneaker and a marking pen.) Also known as the Stripecheck.

an organism or force of nature that spreads an organism to a new area; a path, or method, of invasion. For example, a major vector in zebra mussel invasion is ballast water; the zebra mussels travel from their native waters into new regions when ballast water collected in their native ranges is discharged into non-native waters.
