Metazoan development relies upon the precise control of the genome's expression. This enables different cells in the animal to have different properties, despite having the same genetic material, and different animals to have different morphologies despite sharing developmental genes. However, near-identical organisms may have different overall genomic content, suggesting that the mechanisms by which evolution of the phenotype proceeds on a global level are not well understood. We review here… CONTINUE READING
