Frogs from the genus Xenopus have long been used as modelorganisms in basic and biomedical research. These frogs have helpedunlock key fundamental developmental and cellular processes thathave led to important scientific breakthroughs and have hadpractical application in embryology, cancer research andregenerative medicine. Xenopus Development is a vitalresource on the biology and development of these key modelorganisms, and will be a great tool to researchers using thesefrogs in various disciplines of biological science. Xenopus Development is divided into four sections, thefirst three highlight key processes in Xenopus development fromembryo to metamophosis. These sections focus on the cellularprocesses, organogenesis and embryo development. The final sectionhighlights novel techniques and approaches being used in Xenopusresearch. Providing thorough and detailed coverage, XenopusDevelopment, will be a timely and welcome volume for thoseworking in cell and molecular biology, genetics, developmentalbiology and biomedical research. * Provides broad overview of the developmental biology of bothXenopus laevis and Xenopus tropicalis * Explores cellular to systems development in key biomedicalmodel organisms * Timely synthesis of the field of Xenopus biology * Highlights key biomedical and basic biological findingsunlocked by Xenopus
