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

Key Features

  • First of a 2 part update of volume 225, Guide to Techniques in Mouse Development, edited by P.M. Wassarman and M.L. DePamphilis and published in 1993
  • Comprehensively covers:
    • 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 expression
    • 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
