T-box Genes in Development and Disease looks at the genes encoding the T-box family of transcription factors function as key regulators of many important decision processes during embryonic and tissue development. The importance of these genes is further underlined by the fact that most members of this gene family have been conserved during evolution from worms to humans. This book brings together the current information on conserved aspects with the evolutionary innovations of the functions of these genes during developmental regulation in various animal species and then discusses their important roles in human disease.

About Manfred Frasch

Manfred Frasch is chair of the Division of Developmental Biology in the Department of Biology at Friedrich-Alexander-University of Erlangen-Nurnberg in Germany. From 1991 to 2006 he was on the faculty of Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, where he retains an Adjunct Professor status. Prior to that, Frasch received his Ph.D. degree from Tubingen University, Germany, then performed his postdoctoral training with Michael Levine at Columbia University in New York, and subsequently had a junior group leader position at the Max-Planck-Institute for Developmental Biology in Tubingen. Frasch is a Pew Scholar in the Biomedical Sciences and, from 2013 to 2015, served as chair of the Society of Developmental Biology, Germany (GfE). He has had a long-standing interest in the genetic and molecular mechanisms of muscle and heart development, with a main focus on Drosophila, and has authored over 90 articles and papers.
