The genomic DNA, its packaging as chromatin, and its expression as RNA are considered in the first three chapters. A fourth chapter deals with the strategy of animal development in molecular terms. Three more specialized chapters examine the differentiation of red blood cells, the hormonal control of egg-protein production, and aspects of insect development.
