This volume comprehensively covers new technologies and methodologies that have appeared for the study of mouse development.  

Key Features

This volume is an update of volume 225 of MIE, "Guide to Techniques in Mouse Development", edited by P.M. Wassarman and M.L. DePamphilis and published in 1993. 
During the past 17 years many new technologies or methodologies have appeared for the study of mouse development and this volume comprehensively covers these, including: new techniques for the cryopreservation of gametes and embryos, production of transgenic and null (knockout) animals (use of ES cells), generation of conditional/inducible mutant animals, use of gene-trap mutagenesis, analysis of allele-specific expresion, use of new reporter constructs, humanizing of transgenic animals, transcript profiling of mouse development, imaging of mouse development, rederivation of animals and use of mouse genomics.


Researchers and students in biochemistry, cardiology, cell and molecular biology, neuroscience, pharmacology, endocrinology.
