About this book
Technological advances in genetic/genomic and protein expression analyses as well as bioinformatics are having a major impact on experimental approaches and analytic design.
Principles of Developmental Genetics highlights the intersection of developmental biology with new functional genomic technologies. Unlike anything currently available in the market, Dr. Moody provides a new view of developmental genetics that will influence scientific approaches in the embryology, comparative biology, clinical and developmental genetics, and the newly emerging fields of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. This refence covers a broad understanding of how studies of processes in model systems may be applied to comprehending human development and treating clinical disorders.
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.
