  • In 1960, Jacob and Monod described the bacterial operon, a cluster of functionally interacting genes whose expression is tightly coordinated. Global expression analysis has shown that the highly coordinate expression of genes functioning in common processes is also a widespread phenomenon in eukaryotes. These sets of co-regulated genes, or ‘synexpression groups’, show a striking parallel to the operon, and may be a key determinant facilitating evolutionary change leading to animal diversity.
