Genetic Mechanisms in Differentiation and Development

“In the study of most biological, biochemical, and molecular-genetic problems, just as in the study of many other scientific problems, a full analysis of the facts obtained by experimental investigation of actual phenomena can usually elucidate the mechanisms of the phenomenon, thereby eliminating the need for theoretical hypotheses.” (MEDVEDEV 1970). Yet the speculations are rarely saved when genetic mechanisms of differentiation and development are considered.
