'Sloppy genes' behave like their neighbours
Groundbreaking research in Journal of Biology challenges the traditional view of how genes are controlled. Our current understanding of gene expression, the process by which proteins are made from the instructions encoded in DNA, is that it is tightly controlled so that the correct amount of each protein is produced in the right place at the right time. This new research indicates that some groups of genes that are located next to each other on chromosomes are routinely expressed together.
