Term Definition
Homologue
Describes a gene, protein or morphological structure that is similar in both DNA sequence and amino-acid sequence and function between organisms of different species. Real homologies are based on a common evolutionary descent in contrast to convergent evolution or analogies. Genes discovered initially in fruit flies often have homologues in mammals.
