Study TypeOther
Abstract Hox genes play a fundamental role in regulating the embryonic development of  all animals. Manipulation of these transcription factors in model organisms has unraveled key aspects of evolution, like the transition from fin to limb. However, by virtue of their fundamental role and pleiotropic effects .. [more]
