Cell Commitment and Differentiation
First published in 1987, this book is about how cells differentiate; that is it describes the way in which cells in animal and plant bodies take on their specialised fates. The mechanisms which underlie the processes are described for the embryo and in the adult...

The Consequences of Chromosome Imbalance
This book considers in detail the mechanisms of a major human problem. Chromosome imbalance affects all stages of life in ways ranging from spontaneous abortion and retardation to behavioural problems and malignancy. In The Consequences of Chromosome Imbalance: Principles, Mechanisms, and Models, Ch..

Flow Cytometry Data Analysis
Flow cytometry is now well established in research laboratories and is gaining increasing use in clinical medicine and pathology. The technique enables multiple simultaneous light scatter and fluorescence measurements to be made at the individual cell level at very rapid rates and results in very la..

Lively Membranes
First published in 1983, this book summarises the principles of structure and functions of membranes at the molecular level where so much living activity occurs. The dynamic nature of the molecular activity is stressed and examples are drawn from the range of living organisms from bacteria to higher..

Cancer Metastasis
Metastasis is responsible for a large burden of morbidity and mortality among cancer patients, and currently few therapies specifically target metastatic disease. Further scientific dissection of the underlying pathways is required to pave the way for new therapeutic targets. This groundbreaking new..

The Development of Animal Form
Contemporary research in the field of evolutionary developmental biology, or 'evo-devo', has to date been predominantly devoted to interpreting basic features of animal architecture in molecular genetics terms. Considerably less time has been spent on the exploitation of the wealth of facts and conc..

A Cybernetic View of Biological Growth
Maia is the story of an idea, and its development into a working hypothesis, that provides a cybernetic interpretation of how growth is controlled. Growth at the lowest level is controlled by regulating the rate of growth. Access to the output of control mechanisms is provided by perturbing the grow..

The Shaping of Life
Biological development, how organisms acquire their form, is one of the great frontiers in science. While a vast knowledge of the molecules involved in development has been gained in recent decades, big questions remain on the molecular organization and physics that shape cells, tissues and organism..

Morphogenesis, the set of processes that generate shape and form in the embryo, remains a central area in developmental biology. This book provides a contemporary overview of the events and mechanisms of morphogenesis, reviewing the major molecular and cellular mechanisms underlying morphogenetic ch..
