  • similarity
  • The percentage of identical residues ( percent identity ) or the percentage of residues conserved with similar physicochemical properties ( percent similarity ), e.g. leucine and isoleucine , is usually used to "quantify the homology. (wikipedia.org)
  • Homology refers to similarity in structure, which, according to the theory of evolution, is due to common ancestry. (creation.com)
  • This unit provides an overview of the inference of homology from significant similarity, and introduces other units in this chapter that provide more details on effective strategies for identifying homologs. (merlot.org)
  • level
  • At that homology level, there are likely to be only a few gaps in the alignment, the alignment is likely to be accurate, and the template's 3D structure is likely to be close to the actual target structure. (bio.net)
  • data
  • Homology Medicines, Inc. (FIXX), a genetic medicines company, announced today data demonstrating that Homology's proprietary vectors are able to cross the blood-brain-barrier and have a positive impact on the rare neurological disorder metachromatic leukodystrophy (MLD). (yahoo.com)
