As we grow from childhood to adulthood, our brain,  heart, and skeletal muscles increase in size.  How can  this occur if the cells in these organs do not divide? Genes dictate all the complex functions of our cells This is why scientists would like to understand how cells  read their genome and how gene expression regulates  cell function In addition, understanding cell structure, chemistry,  function and cell-to-cell communication, are critical for  investigating human diseases and deriving therapies to  treat them.
