• Homologous
  • Is the Subject Area "Homologous recombination" applicable to this article? (plos.org)
  • Second, the neo-sex chromosome is homologous to the sex chromosomes of mammals, which makes it possible - for the first time - to study mammalian X gene homologs in a novel, avian Z-linked environment where females are the heterogametic sex (ZW), and thus to draw direct parallels over the avian ZW-mammalian XY boundary.

  • investigate
  • This is an ideal situation for research on sex chromosomes, because the processes we wish to study have had some time to leave detectable genomic footprints, but have not yet removed the material we want to investigate. (lu.se)
