"This eighth edition is masterfully written by Nussbaum, McInnes, and Willard. Widely known as Thompson and Thompson, this is an.
After all, that is the part of the genome that controls biochemical activities of cells and the processes of growth and development. The genome also contains a large array of DNA sequences that have other functions Figure or that perhaps have no function at all. Some sequences represent the no-longer functional copies of duplicated genes, pseudogenes, produced at an earlier time in a species' history. In other cases, the regulatory functions of regions like microRNAs have only recently been recognized. Thus, the genome must be understood as a package of informational, historical, and noncoding DNA along with regions that hold secrets that researchers continue to unravel with the tools of molecular biology.

Mosaicism can occur in any multicellular specimen. Specific mutations may cause phenotypic differences that correlate with the distribution the affected cells. The small patch of abnormal feathers on the head is actually a collection of abdominal feathers.
Normally imprinting results in the inactivation of the Igf2 allele the offspring inherits from the mother. If a heterozygous offspring inherits the normal allele from the father, it will be average sized. Sometimes the genome is not even involved.
Drosophila can inherit carbon dioxide sensitivity from their mother due to a rhabdovirus passed cytoplasmically just like the maternally inherited mitochondria. Influences on development go well beyond the traditional role of genes controlling the synthesis of enzymes and structural proteins. Some special cases have been mentioned in other contexts. Here we will look
