Multigene Families and their Implications for Evolutionary Theory

  • Tomoko Ohta
Part of the Springer Series in Synergetics book series (SSSYN, volume 22)

Summary

Multigene families of hemoglobins, immunoglobulins and histocompatibility antigens are evolving under continued occurrence of unequal crossing-over and gene conversion. They provide a very different picture of evolution from the conventional models of population genetics; nevertheless their polymorphisms and gene diversity may be understood in terms of a common concept with the previous theory, i. e. probability of gene identity.
