genetic programgenetisches Programm (ger.)

  • A series of instructions especially as coded in the sequence of the bases in the DNA which influence or determine the expresson of phenotypic traits.
    built into the genetic program, so to speak, there is a ›curtain cell‹, statistically speaking, at a definite age

    [The completely individualistic and yet also species-specific controls the development of the central and peripheral nervous systems, of the sense organs, of the hormones, of physiology and morphology, is the program for the behavior computer of this individual. [...] The purposive action of an individual, insofar as it is based on the properties of its genetic code, therefore is no more or less purposive than the actions of a computer that has been programmed to respond appropriately to various inputs
