When I think of DNA I think of a big chalkboard full of arrows and 
illustrations of how the baby should look in the end. How are these 
instructions actually INREPRETED into the forming of a baby. Since there 
isn't a controlling organ in chrage of creating the fetus (that I know of) 
how do the cells know how much to divide and to which sections?
