The homeobox genes (Hox gene family) encode for homeodomain-containing transcription factors, which are important in the regulation of embryonic development and cell differentiation. They have a conserved DNA binding domain that are found in the family of hox genes. Discover the latest research on hox gene family here.

Deep homology investigates the genetic mechanisms that are homologous and deeply conserved across a wide range of species in evolutionary developmental biology. Discover the latest research on deep homology here.


Embryogenesis is the process by which the embryo forms and develops. It starts with the fertilization of the egg cell (ovum) by a sperm cell, (spermatozoon). Once fertilized, the ovum is referred to as a zygote, a single diploid cell. The zygote undergoes mitotic divisions with no significant growth (a process known as cleavage) and cellular differentiation, leading to development of a multicellular embryo
