The evolution of complex organisms such as animals requires a large expansion of the number of genes controlling developmental events. In addition, it is thought that domains are shuffled between genes to further increase the complexity and generate new types of genes and functions. Working with the Caenorhabditis elegans homeobox gene ceh-43, the… CONTINUE READING
