    We may conclude that size differences in the tomato fruits here studied are determined from the very beginning of development. The effect of these genetic differences is apparently upon an entire developmental program rather than upon any of its constituent factors.

    The genetic program refers to the totality of information provided by the genes, whereas a developmental program may refer only to that part of the genetic program that is controlling a particular group of cells
