Developmental Biology

Front Cover
John Wiley & Sons, Apr 8, 2019 - Science - 620 pages
This topical volume in the respected Encyclopedia series is the first in many years to bring together all important aspects of developmental biology in one source, from morphogenesis and organogenesis, via epigenetic regulation of gene expression to evolutionary developmental biology. The editor-in-chief has assembled an outstanding team of contributors to review these topics, creating an authoritative work for many years to come.
The result is a unique, top-level reference in developmental biology for researchers, students and professionals alike.
