T-box Genes in Development and Diseaselooks at the genes encoding the T-box family of transcription factors function as key regulators of many important decision processes during embryonic and tissue development. The importance of these genes is further underlined by the fact that most members of this gene family have been conserved during evolution from worms to humans. This book brings together the current information on conserved aspects with the evolutionary innovations of the functions of these genes during developmental regulation in various animal species and then discusses their important roles in human disease.

  • Brings together current knowledge from a wide variety of animal species and humans
  • Presents commentary from authoritative experts, and includes many prominent scientists and their research
  • Illuminates the connections between developmental biology, evolution, and human disease
  • Allows researchers and newcomers to this research area to gain a thorough picture of the current knowledge
