Developmental Biology Protocols
The marriage of cell and molecular biology with embryology has produced remarkable advances for the field of developmental biology. In this third volume of Developmental Biology Protocols, contemporary, practical methods are first presented for the analysis and manipulation of developmental gene expression. To illustrate how such techniques, as well as procedures of experimental embryology including those described in the first two volumes of the series, may be applied in the study of development, a panoramic collection of experimental models of morphogenesis, development, and cellular differentiation are detailed. Both in vivo and in vitro systems are included. The volume concludes with various examples of developmental models of diseases and their molecular basis.
