The cytoskeleton is central to cell biology and is instrumental in developmental events. Volume 31 is divided into two major sections: nonchordate development and chordate development. Summaries of each section compare evolutionary conservation among organisms.


Graduate students and researchers in developmental, cell, and evolutionary biology.
