The regulatory genome functions as a vast information processor through development. It processes the initial conditions that are set by asymmetric distributions of cellular components in the egg and translates them into the onset of spatially localized specification states. It regulates the timely differential activation of signaling molecules and transcription factors that divide the emerging domains into subdomains. It also governs the activation of groups of differentiation genes, the genes
