About this book
A concise introduction exploring how fertilised eggs develop, the process of cell division, the development of patterns, and overall growth, written by the UK's most distinguished developmental biologist.
The development of a single fertilized egg into a fly, an elephant, or a human baby is one the most remarkable near-miracles achieved by nature. This Very Short Introduction, written by the distinguished developmental biologist Lewis Wolpert, gives a concise account of, and explores, one of the liveliest areas of scientific research.
