Protein Kinases in Development and Disease discusses and reviews important, but often neglected, kinases. A good representation of current model organisms from plants and C. elegans to mice are used as the basis to illustrate how we can use our understanding of normal development to learn about disease.
- Reviews kinases, the fundamental regulators of most biological processes that have key roles in the development of all organisms
- Includes a broad scope of topics that are addressed
- Allows researchers and newcomers to this research area to gain a thorough picture of the current knowledge
