Definitions for "Vectors"
An animal which transmits parasites e.g. mosquitoes are vectors of malaria. See also Carrier
Term for animals and other living things that carry pathogens from one host to another without getting the disease themselves. Examples include mosquitoes carrying malaria and yellow fever to humans.
arthropods capable of transmitting pathogens.
have direction and magnitude. Quantitatively, their mathematical presentation requires a number of scalar components equal to the dimensionality of the coordinate system. In general, a vector is a unified entity, which implies the problem of displaying independent, multivariate scalar fields.
A mathematical equation using x-y coordinates to describe an image and its position on a page. The vector image is typically created with an illustration application on a personal computer. The file is then fed as a PostScript or other page descriptor language to a raster image processor that translates the information into a format appropriate for the imagesetter output device. See also: bitmap; imagesetter; line art; object-oriented; page description language; PostScript; raster; raster image processor.
Directions of fire spread as related to rate of spread calculations (in degrees from upslope).
Vectors are lines defined by moving objects. For instance, when red is struck the line that red travels is its vector. If red were not affected by any other forces, it would travel at the same speed and direction to infinity. However, red may strike yellow, in which case yellow will alter the direction and speed of red, as well as moving along its own vector at an equal and opposite direction from that of red. (see Newtonian physics).

Matrices with either one row or one column.
the carriers of DNA genes to be inserted into cells.
Self-replicating DNA molecules that can be joined with DNA fragments to form recombinant DNA molecules.
Plasmids, viruses or other vehicles used to insert desired genes into a host cell.
