The homeobox in perspective.

Author information

  • 1Biozentrum, University of Basel, Switzerland.


The discovery of the homeobox marks the beginning of a new era in developmental biology in which a class of master control genes, which determine the body plan, have been identified. Their mechanism of action can now be studied at the molecular level and their occurrence seems to be much more universal than originally anticipated.
