"Homologous Chromosomes are like a pair of shoes. You get one "shoe" from your mother and one "shoe" from your father"
"It is necessary that chromosomes must be paired appropriately for them to function, and we call the well-matched chromosomes as homologous chromosomes as genes with identical functions are located at the relative position of the homologous chromosomes. Homologous chromosomes are like socks, while genes act as stripes on the socks. "
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
