colinearity

colinearity The correspondence between the order of nucleotides in a section of DNA (cistron) and the order of amino acids in the polypeptide that the cistron specifies. The evidence for this is that the positions of mutation within a particular cistron correspond to, and are in the same order as, the positions at which amino acid substitutions are found in the polypeptide coded by the cistron.
