AFRICAN SPECIES



The biological-genetic codeness that drives differentiation in African Anophelines Larvae body is used to adapt and create a morphogenetic protocol to the implementation of a modular house. In the Larval development, the genome determines the pattern, and the puzzle of developmental biology is used as a metaphor to deploy a growth system applied to housing structures.
