From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Multigene families occur when several similar genes exist in multiple copies in the same region of DNA. They are very similar and may differ by a few nucleotides. They occur in clusters and differ from tandem clusters. They are speculated to have come from unequal crossing overs in meiosis. They have homologies with singlegene families.
