[evomech] Re: Regulatory gene networks and the properties of the developmental process (PNAS)

The proper term for regulatory gene networks would be genetic
control programs. Note that the control programs are not controlled
by genes, are more complex and more influential than the genes they
control. Finally, note that these programs are made up of
progressive, intelligent, teleological feedback loops (pit-loops).
