Description

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

Key Features

This volume is Part B of an 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, and rederivation of animals and use of mouse genomics.

Readership

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