George-Louis Leclerc de Buffon (1707-1788) was among the first to propose that the species on Earth
in the present were different from those long ago, alth

Hox genes are genes that play an important role during embryonic development. They are
regulated genes, they in turn regulate other genes during development[a]. Hox genes can be
found in both vertebrates and
One way new genes come about is through a type of mutation known as gene duplication.
When a cell duplicates, sections of DNA are often copied by accident onto the same or a
different chromosome; but often these duplicated genes h
Pre Class 2.3
Epistatic Interactions are processes where two or more genes undergo epistasis. Epistasis is the process
where to genes rely on one another to produce a phenotype, by having one mask another.(a).
Contrary to genes in epistatic
