Key Experiments in Practical Developmental Biology
by Manuel Marí-Beffa (Editor), Jennifer Knight (Editor)
Including many described by the scientists who carried out the original pioneering research, 27 classic experiments in developmental biology provide key insights into developmental questions. They establish a bridge between state-of-the-art experimental work and the laboratory classes taken at the undergraduate and post-graduate levels. All chapters follow the same logical format, taking the students from materials and methods, through results and discussion, so that they learn the underlying rationale of the research.
