During the past few decades, technical and conceptual breakthroughs have led to a virtual revolution in developmental biology. In part through cross-species compa- sons and multidisciplinary approaches (combining, for example, classical embry- ogy, genetics, molecular biology, and systems biology), major questions have often been redefined and examined from new angles and with innovative tools. Analyses using such model systems as Drosophila, Xenopus, zebrafish, chick, human, and mouse have underscored the remarkable extent to which molecular and genetic pa- ways are conserved across species and throughout embryonic, fetal, and adult dev- opment. What we learn from the embryo, then, is not only of fundamental interest, but may well have future practical applications in the clinic. A number of excellent volumes, including several in this series (e. g. , Hema- poietic Stem Cell Protocols, Klug and Jordan, eds. , 2002), have surveyed methods used in the study of hematopoiesis-the processes by which the multiple lineages of the blood form from stem and progenitor cells during ontogeny and throughout the entire life of the animal. These collections of protocols have focused largely on the postnatal cells of mouse and human. Our understanding of hematopoietic devel- ment, however, has benefitted enormously from investigations in a variety of org- isms at different stages of more

Over the past decade technical and conceptual breakthroughs, cross-species comparisons, and multidisciplinary approaches have led to a virtual revolution in developmental biology. In Developmental Hematopoiesis: Methods and Protocols, a panel of expert investigators critically surveys an array of methods available to study hematopoiesis and describes in detail the powerful techniques they have established to investigate embryonic, fetal, and (to a lesser extent) postnatal blood development. The authors apply their approaches to invertebrate (fruit flies) as well as vertebrate (frog, fish, mouse, chick, and human) organisms. These state-of-the-art techniques range from the genetic, molecular, and cellular, to cell and embryo explant culture and whole animals, including in vivo imaging. Bioinformatic and functional genomic approaches for studying stem cells and their supportive stromal cells are also discussed. The protocols follow the successful Methods in Molecular Medicine(TM) series format, each one offering step-by-step laboratory instructions, an introduction outlining the principle behind the technique, lists of the necessary equipment and reagents, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls. Cutting-edge and highly practical, Developmental Hematopoiesis: Methods and Protocols offers novice and seasoned researchers alike the critical tools needed to gain a fundamental understanding of stem cell biology-examining not only how hematopoietic stem cells form, but also how they differ in the embryo, the fetus, and the more
