heterogeneity Heterogenität
heterogeneity Verschiedenartigkeit
heterogeneous definition: Made up of elements or ingredients that are not alike.
Heterogeneity definition: The quality or state of consisting of elements that are not of the same kind or nature.
Genetic Heterogeneity definition: The presence of apparently similar characters for which the genetic evidence indicates that different genes or different genetic mechanisms are involved in different pedigrees. In clinical settings genetic heterogeneity refers to the presence of a variety of genetic defects which cause the same disease, often due to mutations at different loci on the same gene, a finding common to many human diseases including ALZHEIMER DISEASE; CYSTIC FIBROSIS; LIPOPROTEIN LIPASE DEFICIENCY, FAMILIAL; and POLYCYSTIC KIDNEY DISEASES.
