Crossword clues for genes


n. (plural of gene English)


Gênes was a department of the French Consulate and of the First French Empire in present-day Italy. It was named after the city of Genoa. It was formed in 1805, when the Ligurian Republic (formerly the Republic of Genoa) was annexed directly to France. Its capital was Genoa.

The department was disbanded after the defeat of Napoleon in 1814. It was followed by a brief restoration of the Ligurian Republic, but at the Congress of Vienna the old territory of Genoa was awarded to the Kingdom of Sardinia. Its territory is now divided between the Italian provinces of Genoa, Piacenza, Alessandria and Pavia.

Usage examples of "genes".

For example, there are plenty of genes that regulate their own activity.

In our computer model, therefore, we must have something equivalent to embryonic development, and something equivalent to genes that can mutate.

An animal's genes are never a grand design, a blueprint for the whole body.

The genes, as we shall see, are more like a recipe than like a blueprint.

It is by influencing these local events that genes ultimately exert influences on the adult body.

In real animals and plants there are tens of thousands of genes, but we shall modestly limit our computer model to nine.

I shan't spell out in detail what each one of the other eight genes does.

The reason for wanting 18 is that there are nine genes, and each one can mutate in an 'upward' direction (1 is added to its value) or in a ' downward' direction (1 is subtracted from its value).

And in the computer model too, the numerical values of the nine genes only mean something when they are translated into growing rules for the branching tree pattern.

Geneticists normally don't know how genes exert their effects on embryos.

It is more complicated than that, because the effects of genes interact with each other in ways that are more complicated than simple addition.

Each child gets its shape from the values of its own nine genes (influencing angles, distances, and so on).

Then those same genes either get passed on to the next generation or they don't.

The nature of the genes is unaffected by their participation in bodily development, but their likelihood of being passed on may be affected by the success of the body that they helped to create.

REPRODUCTION passes genes down the generations, with the possibility of mutation.
