Current Topics in Developmental Biology provides a comprehensive survey of the major topics in the field of developmental biology. These 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.

Key Features

* Includes many descriptive figures * Topics covered include Wnt signaling, controlling regulatory networks, cartilage growth plates, and more * Latest volume in the series that covers seven reviews in 300 pages


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