This book represents a classic compilation of current knowledge about mouse development and its correlates to research in cell biology, molecular biology, genetics, and neuroscience. Emphasis is placed on the research strategy, experimental design, and critical analysis of the data, disguishing this from other books that only focus on protocols for mouse developmental research. Selected chapters are indexed to electronic databases such as GeneBank, GenBank, Electronic Mouse Atlas, and Transgenic/Knockout, further increasing the utility of this book as a reference. This book provides: a broad-based overview of mouse development from fundamental to specialist levels; extensive coverage of a wide range of developmental mutations of the mouse; excellent benchmark illustrations of brain, craniofacial, gut and heart development; in-depth experiment-based assessment of concepts in mammalian development; focus on models of specific relevance to human development; comprehensive reference to key literature and electronic databases related to mouse development; and, high-quality full-color production.
...two of the most respected mouse developmental biologists have produced an exceptional book. Right from the outset, it highlights the incredible explosion in our knowledge and understanding of mammalian development over the past decade...will sit very comfortably upon any bookshelf. Paul Trainor, Stowers Institute for Medical Research for NATURE CELL BIOLOGY (September 2002) "...an excellent resource for scientists interested in any of the selected topics covered by one of the authors."
