Current Topics in Developmental Biology provides a comprehensive survey of the major topics in the field of developmental biology. These volumes are valuable to researchers in animal and plant development, as well as to students and professionals who want an introduction to cellular and molecular mechanisms of development. The series has recently passed its 30-year mark, making it the longest-running forum for contemporary issues in developmental biology.

* Includes many descriptive figures
* Topics covered include the role of mitochondrial function, the use of ARTs to regulate mtDNA disease, nuclear transfer, and more
* Latest volume in the series that covers 10 reviews from leading authorities in developmental biology
