dif·fer·en·tial gene ex·pres·sion

gene expression that responds to signals or triggers; a means of gene regulation, for example, effects of certain hormones on protein biosynthesis.

differential gene expression

The biochemical processes that determine which genes are actively transcribed and translated into mRNA and proteins in a cell and under what conditions.

In this first major synthesis of homology in decades, the author (Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Yale) develops the concept of character identity networks--regulatory networks of genes that enable differential gene expression independently of the form of the character being expressed.
