Unformatted text preview: 10. Describe how Drosophila was used to investigate the basic aspects of pattern formation (axis formation and segmentation). 11. Explain how maternal genes affect polarity and development in Drosophila embryos. 12. Describe how gradients of morphogens may specify the axes of developing Drosophila embryos. 13. Describe how homeotic genes define the anatomical identity of the segments of a developing organism. 14. Describe how the study of nematodes contributed to an understanding of the role of induction in development. 15. Describe how apoptosis functions in normal and abnormal development. 16. Describe how the study of tomatoes has contributed to the understanding of flower development. 17. Describe how the study of Arabidopsis has contributed to the understanding of organ identity in plants. 18. Provide evidence of the conservation of homeobox patterns....
