The flow of information from the gene is not under normal circumstances continuous and uncontrolled but is subject to regulation, which ensures that the synthesis of new enzymes and the construction of new cells occur at the right time. It has become a central problem for molecular biology to define the nature of these control mechanisms that keep the normal cell, or, in larger terms, the multicellular animal, functioning as a well-disciplined unit. Cancer research has also precisely the same long-range goal. One of the most dramatic ways in which the normal metabolism of a cell may be upset is
