SUBJECT INDEX

The references in this index are not to pages but to the Articles, Recommendations, etc., of the BioCode, as follows: Div. = Division; Pre. = Preamble; Prin. = Principles; arabic numerals = Articles or, when followed by a letter, Recommendations; N. = Note; fn. = footnote; App. = Appendices.

For ease of reference, two sub-indices have been included under the headings; Definitions and Terminations.
