4 The most pressing questions of the moment concern gene expression, in particular the nature of the network of regulatory events that must be involved in the development of an adult eukaryote from its embryo. Are genes controlled in a temporal cascade? How are the geographical distinctions between parts of the organism originally established and then perpetuated and extended? How far, indeed, can networks involved in gene regulation explain the process of development? Benjamin Lewin, 1994 Genes V
