Description

This is the first handbook structured according to organ systems to cover both embryogenesis and organ development. It addresses the functions of developmental signaling pathways and growth factors with a focus on cell division, cell migration, and cell differentiation. A uniform article structure throughout the book facilitates easy comparison of data. Applications in molecular medicine are highlighted with chapters on developmental disorders and related novel therapeutic strategies.

""...den Herausgebern ein großer Erfolg gelungen ist. Ein bisher nicht vorhandenes Gesamtwerk zur Entwicklungsbiologie der Wirbeltiere mit dem Schwerpunkt der zellulären Signale und der Wachstumsfaktoren ist geschaffen worden... Daher sind die beiden Bände uneingeschränkt allen Wissenschaftlern zu empfehlen, die sich, sei es nun in der Forschung oder in der Lehre, mit der modernen Entwicklungsbiologie befassen.""
