2. Time and space in the mouse early embryo: a cell biological approach to cell diversification Martin H. Johnson and Bernard Maro
3. Comparative aspects of embryo manipulation in mammals Virginia E. Papaioannou and Karl M. Elbert
4. Development of extraembryonic cell lineages in the mouse embryo Janet Rossant
5. Analysis of tissue fate and prospective potency in the egg cylinder Rosa Beddington

Part II. Molecular and Biochemical Aspects:
