4/26/13 10 Gene expression patterns for Bmp4 (encodes a bone morphogenic protein) in Galapagos finches Compared expression patterns for various growth factors known to be expressed during craniofacial development. Pattern for Bmp4 correlated with deep and broad beak morphology. Microevolution via gene expression regulation Changes in expression patterns can fine-tune phenotypes Relative importance compared to protein sequence changes still not known!

4/26/13 11 What about major evolutionary innovations (macroevolution)? Evolution and development Changes in development can have a profound effect on phenotype (morphology). Therefore, focus on the genes involved in determining fundamental morphological patterns during development ( regulatory genes ).

Evolution and development Changes in development can have a profound effect on phenotype (morphology). Therefore, focus on the genes involved in determining fundamental morphological patterns during development ( regulatory genes ). Many of the same genes determine patterns of development in all animals.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
