As progress in cell developmental biology carries on at a breakneck speed, new techniques constantly arise to plug the gaps left by traditional strategies. Cellular Interactions in Development provides detailed discussion and protocols of some of these new techniques, which allow themanipulation of developing organisms such as Drosophila or plants, when and where cells interact with each other to influence their development. The book looks at the really exciting innovations of the identification and functional test of molecules which control these cellular behaviours. The bookalso describes a number of new ways of hunting for these important proteins involved in cellular communication. A fully comprehensive manual which will prove indispensable to researchers in the fields of cell, developmental, and molecular biology.
