Processes involved in the ectoderm forming the central nervous system and epidermis, the fates of the neural-crest cells and axonal specification, partitioning of the mesoderm to form the body cavities, muscles, and organs, as well as the formation of the respiratory and digestive tract from the endoderm, are well written and clearly described.
Throughout the text there is in-depth coverage of the many genes and proteins involved in the building of an organism, whether the natural way or by way of transgenics and cloning.
