Developmental biology is at the core of biological science,integrating molecular biology, genetics and anatomy. The past 15years has seen revolutionary advances not only in our understandingof the processes by which an egg develops into an adult, but alsoin the application of this knowledge to the areas of reproductivetechnology, drug development and organ replacement.

Produktbeschreibung
Developmental biology is at the core of biological science,integrating molecular biology, genetics and anatomy. The past 15years has seen revolutionary advances not only in our understandingof the processes by which an egg develops into an adult, but alsoin the application of this knowledge to the areas of reproductivetechnology, drug development and organ replacement. Essential Developmental Biology is a concise andwell-illustrated treatment of this subject for undergraduates.Assuming no prior knowledge of anatomy and only the basics of cellbiology and genetics, the book starts off by introducing theprinciples and approaches of developmental biology. The secondsection covers the characteristic development of each of theprincipal model species used for research and the final chaptersare devoted to organ development, predominantly in vertebrates.With an emphasis throughout on the evidence underpinning the mainconclusions, this book is suitable as the key text for bothintroductory and more advanced courses in developmentalbiology. * * A new approach to a widely taught subject. * Priced for student purchase at approximately half the price ofthe main competition. * Over 200 illustrations, with artwork available free on theWeb. * Well-known author/media celebrity.
