Embryology, long occupying a central position in the life sciences, has undergone many dramatic changes during the course of its development. The title of this volume suggests, as its contents demonstrate, that in recent years embryology has undergone yet another change. The rapid developments in cellular and subcellular biology have had impact upon embryology, and developmental biology is now a meeting ground for many concepts and techniques of modern "molecular biology."

This volume contains 44 recently published research articles, grouped according to their concern with 14 central problems of embryology, viz, cell association, induction, cytodifferentiation and cell division, the role of nucleus, chromosome differentiation, genetic control of differentiation, isozymes, enzyme regulation, RNA synthesis, synthesis of cell-specific products, macromolecules as the basis of structure, hormones, growth substances, and cellvirus interactions. Each section is preceded by a bibliography and introduction.

Recent advances in the analysis of embryonic development, as revealed here, are
