About this book

In Molecular Embryology: Methods and Protocols, Second Edition, expert investigators provide a comprehensive guide to the cutting-edge methods used across the dramatically growing field of vertebrate molecular embryology. Time-tested techniques take advantage of the most commonly used vertebrate experimental models: murine embryos for their genetics, chick embryos for in vivo manipulation, zebrafish for mutagenesis, amphibian embryos, and nonvertebrate chordates. The second edition collects classic protocols which have become standard techniques in the laboratory and presents them in a complementary fashion with novel and emerging approaches, allowing researcher to become more familiar with commonly studied embryos used in biomedical research. Insightful to the experienced professional, Molecular Embryology: Methods and Protocols, Second Edition, presents cutting-edge findings of perhaps the greatest period in growth and productivity in the field of developmental biology.

Reviews

Reviews of the first edition:

"This book has much to offer biologists interested in the molecular biology of developmental systems in a wide range of vertebrates." - Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal

"Universal techniques are well-written, complete, and easy to follow including in situ hybridization, differential display PCR, as well as standard protocols for library construction, Northern and Southern analyses. This would be an excellent addition to any developmental biology laboratory, university department, and especially good for graduate students and post-docs." -Teratology

"...this book is a tome, a necessity imposed on it by its breadth, both in terms of model organisms (mouse, chicken, amphibians, zebra fish and prochordates) and methods (surgery, retro-virology, in situ hybridization, molecular biology, immunohistochemistry, microscopy and photography.) The protocols are compact and clearly written, with ever-so-helpful hints (called notes) grouped at the end of each chapter. ...we encourage both teachers and researchers actively involved in experimental embryology to buy this book, put it on the shelf and let your students know it is there." - TINS

"Molecular Embryology provides an excellent source for understanding the strengths and weaknesses of the various vertebrate model organisms, and provides a ready source for highly useful protocols....The protocols are thoroughly described and are accompanied by helpful illustrations. Developmental biologists will be pleased to add this book to their collection, and will likely reference it often for its many useful protocols." - The Quarterly Review of Biology

"This book is of interest to embryologists, biologists and probably to some neonatologists and geneticists. It describes in detail the experimental use of animal embryos...A well illustrated and referenced text for specialists." - Journal of Endocrine Genetics
