Concept #1: Genetics of Development

Practice: During early development, human cells determine their differentiated fates based on the environment. What term describes this phenomenon?

Practice: The variable gene activity hypothesis states that cell differentiation and determination is controlled through differences in gene activation or inactivation.

Practice: If an embryonic cell is damaged in an organism that undergoes mosaic determination, will the offspring produced develop normally or abnormally?
