REVISION 3

Definition contributed by BGregory about six years ago:the act or process of interfering, obstruction; the mutual effect on meeting of two wave trains (as of light or sound) that constitutes alternating areas of increased and decreased amplitude (as light and dark lines or louder and softer sound); partial or complete inhibition or sometimes facilitation of other genetic crossovers in the vicinity of a chromosomal locus where a preceding crossover has occurred; confusion of a received radio signal due to the presence of noise or signals from two or more transmitters on a single frequency; the disturbing effect of new learning on the performance of previously learned behavior with which it is inconsistent.
