About the Authors
  • 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.

    • Classic experiments in developmental biology described by the leaders in the field who originally carried out the research
    • Includes helpful information for course instructors such as potential sources of failure, key teaching concepts, sources of materials
    • Provides a bridge between research and what is learnt by advanced students in the field of developmental biology
