Guide to Techniques in Mouse Development, Part B, is an authoritative guide to different methods used in enzymology, focusing on investigating mouse development using technological advances. The text provides information regarding the principles of the methods in mouse development, and it offers readers reliable experimental protocols and recipes described comprehensively by leaders in the field of enzymology.

The text is divided into three sections and organized into 25 chapters. Below are several concepts covered by the text:

Lentivirus transgenesis o Germline modification using mouse stem cells
Applications of transposons in mouse genetics
Functional genomics using transposon systems
The use of DNA transposons in detecting cancer genes in mice
Recombination, conditional mutagenesis and induction of tamoxifen
Genetic fate mapping using recombinases
Genetic screens mouse ES cells
Gene trap mutagenesis
Mouse mutagenesis
Self- renewal and pluripotency
Transgenic RNAi applications
Gene knockdowns
Tetracycline-controlled transcription
Gene expression profiling of mouse embryos
