Cover legend

The activity (stained blue) of a Hoxa7/lacZ reporter transgene in 7.8, 9, 10, and 14.5 day mouse embryos indicates the considerable growth of a Hox expression domain. All embryos are shown at the same magnification. In both mouse and Drosophila, chromatin structure regulates clonal growth of Hox gene activity and this has been implicated in models proposed to explain the Hox collinearity rule. For more information, see paper by Gaunt pp. 159-170 in the current issue.
