  • Panel 5
  • Mutations in the evolution of these HOX genes.
  • Panel 6
  • The reason that HOX gene mutations promote evolutionary diversity is that there is no universal solution that guarantees that a species will survive and reproduce. The

  • As a result, phenotypic diversity flourishes, as Homeobox Genes allow a single gene to have a drastic impact on the organism.
