A Bug's Life Photograph by Rosamond Purcell
Genes map out a long-horned beetle's body well before the bug takes on its familiar shape. The position and number of limbs, wings, antennae, even pincers are determined by "tool kit" genes switching on and off during development. Even colors and patterns are driven by genes—powerful bits of information that shape all living creatures.
