Novartis Foundation Symposia, Band 182 1. Aufl.
Connects classical cellular descriptive studies with more recent work on the molecular and genetic aspects regarding germline development. Prominent scientists discuss research on a range of organisms including insects, worms, birds, fish, amphibia, mammals and green algae. Specification of germ cells, their migration to the gonads and subsequent interactions with the soma and evolutionary factors of their segregation are among the topics covered.

Germline Development Chairwoman: Anne McLaren 1994 The germline is the cell lineage that forms the link between generations and is, potentially, immortal. In animals that reproduce sexually, the germ cells undergo sexual differentiation and genetic recombination. Despite its importance, the development of the germline is an area of biology that, until recently, had been relatively neglected because of the technical difficulties associated with working with very early embryos. However, over the last few years, improved cell culture techniques, the availability of specific markers for germ cells and the identification of genes involved in germ cell specification have enabled rapid progress to be made in our understanding of the processes involved. This book links classical, cellular descriptive studies with more recent work on the molecular and genetic aspects of germline development. Contributions from some of the leading scientists in this field describe studies on a range of organisms, including insects, worms, birds, fish, amphibia, mammals and green algae. The topics covered include the specification of the germ cells, their migration to the gonads and subsequent interactions with the soma, and gametogenesis. Evolutionary aspects of germ cell segregation are also considered.
