This book brings together scientists working at the interface between the cell cycle, cell growth and development in a variety of model systems and research paradigms. The focus is on understanding how such diverse developmental inputs can modulate cell cycle regulation and, reciprocally, how a common way of regulating cell cycle progression can participate in different developmental strategies.
Appropriate as a reference book for researchers in health-related fields or for professionals in biostatistics, insurance, and government; or as a text for graduate students in biostatistics and epidemiology
