About this book

Contains 19 review articles covering a broad spectrum of topics, from development to genetic tools. The contents range from early development, the role of maternal factors and gastrulation, to tissue differentiation and organogenesis, such as development of the organizer, notochord, floor plate, nervous system, somites, muscle, skeleton and endoderm. The genetic tools cover morpholino knock down, trangenics, fish cloning, transposons and genome evolution. The book also includes 2 chapters on genome mapping and embryonic stem cells in medaka, another important model fish.
