It is the serial linking of DNA chunks.  I do not know if the chunks have
to be the same length.  In the SAGE protocol, you serially link defined
streches(fixed length) of DNA from genes that are being expressed in a
head to toe manner .  These concatomers can be sequenced and the gene
expression can be analyzed.
