About this book
This book provides a thorough introduction to widely used techniques for the study of the intersection between developmental biology and neuroscience, an exceptional area to address and investigate impacting biological questions. The fully updated volume examines cutting-edge techniques on a representative range of animals, including widely used genetic model systems, such as the fruit fly, zebra fish, chicken, and mouse, as well as non-canonical experimental systems opened up through the advent of genome editing. Written for the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series, 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 up-to-date, Brain Development: Methods and Protocols, Second Edition is an ideal guide for researchers interested in utilizing recent technical advances in molecular genetics for the study of the brain.
