About this book


This detailed book provides a wide range of techniques, from those that have been used extensively since the very first investigations into neural crest cells to those that are currently cutting-edge, in order to explore the development of neural crest cells in human, mice, rat, chick, quail, medaka, and shark. With a bit of imagination and adjustment, many of these methodologies can be adaptable to any species desirable for study. Written for the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.

Authoritative and practical, Neural Crest Cells: Methods and Protocols serves as an ideal reference guide for aspiring and experienced developmental biologists alike.
