About this book

Written as a companion to Kaufman's`The Atlas of Mouse Development', this book details the developmental anatomy of the early embryo, the transitional tissues, and all the major organ systems of the mouse.

The Anatomical Basis of Mouse Development by Kaufman and Bard will certainly become a standard resource for both experts and novices analyzing mouse phenotypes. ...The developmental anatomy covered in this book is first rate and provides exceptional detail about many important organ systems. ...Clearly we need many more text, CD, and web-based resources in the mouse genetics field such as the Anatomical Basis of Mouse Development... It is clear to me that every laboratory using the mouse in biomedical research should have at least one copy of this book. It will become an instant classic for the field. Richard R. Behringer, M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, in CELL (September 1999)
