Research recently published by Michigan State University examined the genomic basis of the convergent anatomical and physiological origins of the myogenic electric organ and found similar transcription factors and cellular pathways had independently evolved in different species.

Convergent traits describe similar features that emerge from independent evolution events in species of different lineages.
