From the very first moment of the creation of a new human being at fertilisation, the single cell which is the new individual is already endowed with its full complement of hereditary information. This single cell will divide and form millions of new cells, which will each be adapted for specific functions; millions of chemical compounds will be synthesised, which will be used in the cells themselves, or for communications between cells; mechanisms for the precise regulation of all kinds of processes will develop. All these events take place in a determined sequence: embryonic development, growth, senescence, then death.
