chromosomes: (synonym: homologs) The two chromosomes from a particular pair, normally one inherited from the mother and one from the father, containing the same genetic loci in the same order
genetically related and therefore similar.
Matched (usually of a pair of chromosomes).
In chromosomes, a pair of chromosomes that contain the same gene (although perhaps different alleles). There are 23 pairs of homologous chromosomes in humans; one of each was contributed by each parent.
