Principles of Development

Heftet / 2011 / Engelsk
The process of biological development is an amazing feat of tightly regulated cellular behaviours - differentiation, movement, and growth - powerful enough to result in the emergence of a highly complex living organism from a single cell, the fertilized egg. Principles of Development clearly illustrates the universal principles that govern this process of development, in a succinct and accessible style. Written by two highly respected and influential developmental biologists, Lewis Wolpert and Cheryll Tickle, it focuses on those systems that best illuminate the common principles covered in the text, and avoids overwhelming the reader with encyclopaedic detail. With co-authors whose expertise spans the discipline, Principles of Development combines a careful exposition of the subject with insights from some of the world's pioneering researchers in developmental biology, guiding the student from the fundamentals through to the latest discoveries in the field. Online Resource Centre The Online Resource Centre to accompany Principles of Development features For registered adopters of the text: Electronic artwork: Figures from the book are available to download, for use in lectures. Journal Club: Suggested research papers and discussion questions linked to topics featured in the book, guide the process of assimilating knowledge from the research literature. Figures in PowerPoint: Figures inserted into PowerPoint for use in handouts and presentations. For students: Web links and web activities: Recommended websites linked to each chapter guide students to further sources of information each accompanied by a brief overview of how the source can help with their studies and a thought question to help think about the main issues. Flashcard glossary: Glossary from the text in interactive flashcard format helps revise key terms and concepts. Multiple choice questions to test knowledge with detailed feedback

An outstanding text with a welldigested and comprehensive presentation of current views in developmental biology. It is a text I can enthusiastically recommend for adoption in developmental biology courses. Richard Harland, University of California-Berkeley in Development, December 2011
