About this Book
This is the first handbook structured according to organ systems to cover both embryogenesis and organ development. It addresses the functions of developmental signaling pathways and growth factors with a focus on cell division, cell migration, and cell differentiation. A uniform article structure throughout the book facilitates easy comparison of data. Applications in molecular medicine are highlighted with chapters on developmental disorders and related novel therapeutic strategies.
