In this handwritten note for the annual report from the Laboratory of Biochemical Genetics (1992-1993), Nirenberg explains
that studying homeobox genes in Drosophila allows the researcher to test hypotheses about the relationship between genes and
nervous system development experimentally. Furthermore, understanding the role of the homeobox genes in Drosophila may help
in understanding the development of the mammalian nervous system more clearly in the future.
