We have a few questions regarding the chromosome structure and how the
cells access the proper genes:

Could any of you explain how the cells figure out where in the
chromosome to find the genes that it shall use for its proteine

What is the deciding factor for which genes to be read in a cell?

Are there special types of basepair sequences that act as start and stop
signs for genes?

If you don't know the answer, do you know where on the Internet we could
find documentation on this?
