An understanding of the function and regulation of individual genes is critical to our understanding of how genetic information (genotype) is transformed into the shape, size and type of an individual organism (its phenotype). This subject explores the diverse mechanisms of regulation in both prokaryote and eukaryote systems and the techniques used to explore them. The subject also describes how different cells differentiate and develop and introduces the molecular basis of embryology and genome evolution.
