Publishing in May 2013, Scott Gilberts Developmental Biology, Tenth Edition embodies the breadth, the intellectual rigor, and the wonder of contemporary developmental biology. Written primarily for undergraduate biology majors, this book can also serve to introduce graduate students and medical students to the field. The completely updated text integrates classical developmental biology with all the incredible advances that have been made in recent years. Dr. Gilberts unique ability to synthesize the breakthroughs in this rapidly evolving discipline in a succinct, organized manner has made Developmental Biology the go-to source for a generation of teachers and nascent developmental biologists. New: * "Integration" has emerged as the key theme in developmental biology over the past three years. The mechanisms of transcriptional gene regulation and of aging, the data on amniote limb development, the ways in which fertilization occurs, and the mechanisms of sex determination-each has been integrated. Even developmentally important genes have been "integrated" into genetic regulatory networks. The new Tenth Edition reflects this exciting new age of genomics, genetic regulatory networks, and digital visualization techniques. * Cytoskeletal dynamics, which integrate the genetic regulatory genes with morphogenetic events, has overhauled the discussions of neural development and cell signaling. Enduring Features: * An evolutionary context, provided in the first chapter and continued throughout the book, now incorporates the revolutionary new discoveries of the horizontal transfer of enhancer-bearing transposable elements as well as the possible origins of multicellularity as a developmental response to bacteria. * The book maintains its four-part structure with brief part openers that address key concerns in developmental biology and provide an introduction to the subsequent chapters. Each chapter ends with a guide to Web-based resources r

Bioethics and the New Embryology

Genre: Science

"This brief textbook of human development covers the events of fertilization, gestation, and sex determination, followed by descriptions of the science of cloning, stem cells, and genome sequencing. The chapter covering the science is juxtaposed with a chapter discussing ethical questions that arise, such as when does life begin, should assisted reproductive technologies be regulated, and should parents be allowed to choose their child's sex"--Provided by publisher.

Fear Wonder and Science in the New Age of Reproductive Biotechnology

Author: Scott Gilbert
Publisher: Columbia University Press
ISBN: 9780231544580
Release Date: 2017-08-08
Genre: Science

How does one make a decision today about in vitro fertilization, abortion, egg freezing, surrogacy, and other matters of reproduction? This book provides the intellectual and emotional intelligence to help individuals make informed choices amid misinformation and competing claims. Scott Gilbert and Clara Pinto-Correia, renowned scientists and communicators, speak to the couple trying to become pregnant, the woman contemplating an abortion, and the student searching for sound information about human sex and reproduction. Their book is an enlightening read for men as well as for women, describing in clear terms how babies come into existence through both natural and assisted reproductive pathways. The book first covers the most recent and well-grounded scientific conclusions about fertilization and early human embryology. It then discusses the reasons why some of the major forms of assisted reproductive technologies were invented, how they are used, and what they can and cannot accomplish. Most important, the authors explore the emotional side of using these technologies to become pregnant, focusing on those who have emptied their emotions and bank accounts in a valiant effort to get pregnant. This work of science and human biology is informed by a moral concern for our common humanity.

Genre: Science

Morphogenesis is the set of processes that generate shape and form in the embryo--an important area within developmental biology. An exciting and up-to-the-minute account of the very latest research into the factors that create biological form, Mechanisms of Morphogenesis, second edition is a text reference on the mechanisms of cell and tissue morphogenesis in a diverse array of organisms, including prokaryotes, animals, plants and fungi. By combining hard data with computer modeling, Mechanisms of Morphogenesis, second edition equips readers with a much broader understanding of the scope of modern research than is otherwise available. The book focuses on the ways in which the genetic program is translated to generate cell shape, to direct cell migration, and to produce the shape, form and rates of growth of the various tissues. Each topic is illustrated with experimental data from real systems, with particular reference to gaps in current knowledge and pointers to future Includes over 200 four-color figures Offers an integrated view of theoretical developmental biology and computer modelling with laboratory-based discoveries Covers experimental techniques as a guide to the reader Organized around principles and mechanisms, using them to integrate discoveries from a range of organisms and systems
