GENETICS AND GENE EXPRESSION
The switching on and off of genes is important in the activation of immune system cells and for the generation of proteins needed in the immune response. Moreover, during development, differentiating cells destined for different roles in the immune system exhibit characteristic patterns of gene expression. By manipulating and studying patterns of expression, researchers hope to elucidate the signals and mechanisms responsible for regulating the development and function of the immune system.
