Description

Advances in Morphogenesis, Volume 8 covers the developments in the study of morphogenesis. The book discusses the morphogenetic aspects of acrosome formation and reaction; the migration and differentiation of neural crest cells; and the reaggregation of dissociated cells of sea urchin embryos. The text also describes the interacting genetic systems in Paramecium; genome transcription in fish development; as well as the biosynthesis of steroid hormones by the embryonic gonads of vertebrates. Biologists, molecular biologists, and medical students will find the book invaluable.
