About this book

A major question in developmental biology is how embryonic cells produce the highly specialized tissue of intermediate and adult forms. This book presents the results of research on 8 animal models.

Sally A. Moody is Professor of Anatomy and Cell Biology at the George Washington University Medical Center, and a member of both the Neuroscience and Genetics programs. Prior to this appointment she was on the faculty of the Anatomy and Cell Biology Department, the Department of Neuroscience, and the Developmental Biology program at the University of Virginia. She trained in developmental neurobiology at the University of Floridas Department of Neuroscience and the University of Utahs Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy. Dr. Moodys current research focuses on the cascade of interactions that instruct lineages to give rise to the frog nervous system. She has taught developmental neurobiology in the MBL "Neurobiology" course and was co-director of the "Early Development of Xenopus Laevis" course at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. She has also served on many National Institute of Health advisory committees dealing with issues in developmental biology and developmental neurobiology, and served on the Board of Trustees of the Society for Developmental Biology.

Media reviews
The thorough presentation and discussion of these eight animal model systems [sea urchin, leech, nematode, fly, frog, fish, chick, and mammal] would be very useful to anyone who thinks about many of the critical questions in development. It certainly should be on the shelves of all life science libraries. --DOODY'S REVIEW SERVICE (June 1999) "The contributors provide a broad overview of how findings from eight model organisms form our current understanding of the mechanisms by which embryonic cells attain their final differentiated state. For each animal, they present the important developmental processes, the experimental usefulness, and several chapters describing interdisciplinary research on key questions." --SCIENCE (April 16,1999)
