Contents INTRODUCTION; PREFACE; CONTRIBUTORS; CONTENTS; Drosophila as a Genetic Model System for Understanding Human Biology and Disease; Caenorhabditis elegans as a Model for Human Biology and Disease; Transgenic Mouse Models; Genetic Models of Respiratory Tract Development From Invertebrates to Vertebrates; Development of Branched Structures and the Cellular Response to Hypoxia An Evolutionary Perspective; Study of Anoxia Tolerance Use of a Novel Genetic Approach and Animal Model
Summary A study of breakthroughs in genetic analysis and manipulation. It details how genetic model systems facilitate better comprehension of mammalian and human biology and disease, and highlights studies of Drosophila melanogaster Caenorhabditis (C.) elegans, zebrafish, and transgenic mouse models
