Glossary of "Evolution (4th ed.)" by Futuyma & Kirkpatrick (2017)

  • A process involving the unidirectional transfers of DNA information from one gene to another. In a typical conversion event, a gene or part of a gene acquires the same sequence as the other allele at that locus (intralocus or intra-allelic conversion), or the same sequences as a different, usually paralogous, locus (interlocus conversion). One consequence of gene conversion may be the homogenization of sequences among members of a gene family.
