large and diverse body of data argues that chromosomes are longitudinally A differentiated in such a way that corresponding segments located in different chromosomes are able to recognize and synapse with each other with a high degree of precision at meiotic prophase; this property is termed “homology.” Although regions exhibiting homology may not be coiitinuous throughout the length of a chromosome (cf. PRITCHARD 1960), the data (e.g. from crossing over) require that the boundaries and… CONTINUE READING
