Recent research into the development of the nervous system of the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans indicates the importance of multiple cell interactions and combinatorial gene expression. As many of the genes needed for C. elegans neuronal development have counterparts with similar activities in Drosophila melanogaster, the mechanisms of cell specification may be broadly conserved.
