About this book

Provides a range of comprehensive, and authoritative reviews of current research into patterning, a fundamental process in developmental biology.

... a very enjoyable read ... The book has been carefully edited and all chapters link to each other and make appropriate cross-references, which is very helpful to a newcomer to this field. BioEssays This book gives a succinct overview of vertebrate patterning and concentrates on areas in which we begin to gain an understanding of the molecular mechanisms involved. The account of some pressing questions currently addressed makes it very up to date and therefore the book should be on the reading list of any student committed to this exciting and rapidly progressing research area. BioEssays This book is an interesting and very informative read, and sets out state-of-the-art levels of understanding in the various fields ... For young scientists entering a career in developmental biology, this book should be a focus of interest as well as a spur to dive into a field with many exciting opportunities and challenges for their research. BSDB Newsletter ... good cross-referencing between the different chapters. The chapters are also very well referenced and the reader is given both historical and very up-to-date bibliographies to draw from. BSDB Newsletter
