Description

The inaugural volume of Advances in Developmental Biology and Biochemistry paints a rather broad stroke through the field. Pattern formation and cellular communication during animal development, as well as Y chromosome function during mammalian development, are major themes of this volume. Several experimental systems, including mice, flies, and worms are considered.
