Embryology is the study of embryos. It is the branch of biological science that deals with the formation and early development of an individual organism, from fertilization of the egg (ovum) to birth. This collection includes chapters on some of the most important topics in embryology today, such as cryopreservation of human embryos, in vitro generation of neurons from embryonic stem cells, embryonic transfer, transcriptional profiling, and more.

CONTENTS:
• What Makes Us Human? A Biased View from the Perspective of Comparative Embryology and Mouse Genetics
• Maternal Diabetes Alters Transcriptional Programs in the Developing Embryo
• Increased Expression of Heat Shock Protein 105 in Rat Uterus of Early Pregnancy and Its Significance in Embryo Implantation
• Ovarian Hyperstimulation Syndrome and Prophylactic Human Embryo Cryopreservation: Analysis of Reproductive Outcome Following Thawed Embryo Transfer
• Neural Differentiation of Embryonic Stem Cells In Vitro: A Road Map to Neurogenesis in the Embryo
• Defining Human Embryo Phenotypes by Cohort-Specific Prognostic Factors
• Search for the Genes Involved in Oocyte Maturation and Early Embryo Development in the Hen

About the Authors / Editors:
Editor: Sabine Globig
Associate Professor of Biology, Hazard Community and Technical College, Kentucky, USA

Prof. Sabine Globig received her BA in 1972 at the American University School of International Service and her MS in horticulture and plant physiology in 1988 at Rutgers University. Presently, she is Professor of Biology at Hazard Technical College in the Appalachian Mountains of Eastern Kentucky, where she specializes in human anatomy and physiology and plant sciences. She has also worked as an Instructor of Biology at Union County College in New Jersey and at Rutgers University, the State University of New Jersey, and as a certified high school biology teacher. While at Rutgers, she worked as a plant physiology researcher at its AgBiotech Center and held the same position for DNA Plant Technologies Corporation. She has given presentations at XXII International Conference on Horticultural Science, University of California Davis, CA, 1987; and 1997 ISHS International Symposium on Artificial Lighting in Horticulture, Noordwijkerhout, Netherlands. She has also been included in several Who's Who entries.
