20.1 Molecular Tool Kit Developmental Genes are similar - regulatory genes have been conserved - can lead to vastly different results 20.2 Mutations on Body Parts - embryo made up of modules - Developmental genes act on different modules Genetic Switches govern molecular Tool Kits - determine where and when genes are turned on/of - influence more than one process Modularity Allows Differences in timing and spatial pattern of gene expression
