Emne: Gene regulation

Om dette emnet

You have tens of thousands of genes in your genome. Does that mean your cells express all of those genes, all the time? Not by a long shot! Even an organism as simple as a bacterium must carefully regulate gene expression, ensuring that the right genes are expressed at the right time. Learn more about the mechanisms cells use to turn genes "on" and "off."
