    Artificial genes have helped to learn how stem cells understand who they turn into

    (ORDO NEWS) — American researchers have for the first time created artificial Hox genes that regulate the movement of stem cells in the body and ensure the formation of organs in the right places. In DNA, these genes are located in dense clusters, which made it difficult to study them, and the study was the first practical confirmation of the role of Hox genes. Almost all highly organized animals are…
