Is there a word that refer to homologous chromosomes within a polyploid species? If I have AABB species, what is A to B?
The words "homeolog" and "ohnolog" are reserved for the cases if the homologous chromosomes have diverged via speciation or whole genome duplication event. But what if we just don't know?
I hesitate to use word "homologous chromosomes" since they do not for a choromosome pair anymore, they are homologous in sense of an recent common chromosome ancestor.
