Homology, Biology

Homology indicates similarity between the two different nucleotide or the amino acid sequences, generally with potential evolutionary importance. It is probably better to use more quantitative and descriptive terms like nucleotide "identity" or, in the case of proteins, amino acid "identity" or "relatedness" (the latter refers to presence of the amino acids residues with the similar polarity/charge characteristics at same position within a protein).
