Analogy: The similarity of characteris3cs between two species that are not closely related; a>ributable to convergent evolu3on. Two sisters: homologs Two Elvis : analogs http://evolution.berkeley.edu/evolibrary/search/topicbrowse2.php?topic_id=55 Useful link: Similarity: Homology vs Analogy Classical example of homology: Legs and Limbs Koonin EV (2005).

1/28/14 5 DotPlot: Overview of Sequence Similarity Build a table S: - rows: Sequence 1 - columns: Sequence 2 Assign a score S(i,j) to each entry in the table: - select a window size WS WS WS i j - Compare window around i with window around j -> Score(i,j) Display table of scores S - show a dot at position (i,j) if Score(i,j) > Threshold The Scoring Scheme Scores are usually stored in a weight matrix also called subs6tu6on matrix or matching matrix.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
