Current Topics in Developmental Biology provides a comprehensive survey of the major topics in the field of developmental biology. The volumes are valuable to researchers in animal and plant development, as well as to students and professionals who want an introduction to cellular and molecular mechanisms of development. The series has recently passed its 30-year mark, making it the longest-running forum for contemporary issues in developmental biology. This volume contributes eight vital chapters in the latest developmental biology research.

Key Features

* Over 280 pages of the latest research in developmental biology * Includes the latest research in stem and srogenitor sells and their formation of the Pulmonary Vascular * Covers the transplantation of undifferentiated, bone-marrow derived stem cells * Offers an explanation of protein-protein interactions of the developing enamel matrix


Developmental biologists, cell biologists, genetics researchers, and molecular biologists
