Characterization of the heterochronic genes has provided a strong foundation for understanding the molecular mechanisms of developmental timing in C. elegans. In apparent contrast, studies of developmental timing in Drosophila have demonstrated a central role for gene cascades triggered by the steroid hormone ecdysone. In this review, I survey the molecular mechanisms of developmental timing in C. elegans and Drosophila and outline how common regulatory pathways are beginning to emerge.
