Early Mouse Development

Part of the Results and Problems in Cell Differentiation book series (RESULTS, volume 18)


The mouse is well established as the experimental mammal for developmental and genetic studies. The large interest in mouse development and genetics is founded in our curiosity about human embryonic development and in our interest in understanding genetic diseases perturbing normal embryogenesis. The use of mice (as a mammalian model) is favoured due to their easy maintenance and handling as well as their relatively short generation time.
