expression

n. an external manifestation of an internal condition or characteristic. For example, gene expression is the process by which the instructions encoded in DNA are used to create observable products, such as proteins (and by extension demonstrable physical attributes, such as hair or eye color). The term, however, is most often used in reference to the communication of a thought, behavior, or emotion, as in emotional expression or facial expression.
