Description

The new third edition of Gene Activity in Early Development reflects the ten years of technological progress since the last edition. Providing a unique blend of classical and molecular knowledge, it discusses all major embryonic systems from both a comparative and mechanistic point of view. In deriving overall interpretations of developmental phenomena, it brings into play all the disparate forms of evidence, including genetic, molecular, and cytological.**This book is written for any serious student or scholar entering the field, whether his or her background is in genetics, molecular biology, or embryology.

Readership

(1) This is a textbook for adoption in undergraduate and graduate level courses on developmental biology. (2) As a professional monograph, it will be of interest to the whole range of cell and molecular biologists and geneticists.

Reviews

@qu:...providing a strongly comparative point of view and generating broad and well-balanced interpretations of large bodies of connected facts. The result is an excellent book... @source:--SCIENCE @qu:It is a meticulously prepared heavyweight review, clearly written but with the density of citation and numerical detail that are the stuff of reference works....an invaluable insurance against having to read more than a fraction of the 1,800 or so references cited. @source:--NATURE @qu:...all who read thebook, undergraduate and senior scientist alike, will find themselves well served by this unique and particularly insightful view of development. @source:--ENGINEERING & SCIENCE
