Abstract:

There is a twofold revolution going on in developmental biology. This ... text is a document of that revolution. The first phase of the revolution ... began to make use of the recombinant DNA technologies to explain how the genetic instructions specified phenotypes composed of different cell types and organs ... The second phase of ... developmental biology looked outward to other fields, applying recombinant DNA techniques and even newer technologies (bioinformatics and genomics) to bring developmental biology into areas that it had abandoned during its history. There are four fields of expansion and reconciliation: evolution, embryology, ecology, and medicine.-Pref.
