Overview

The study of germ cells has experienced enormous advances in recent years and has now entered into an explosive phase of new discoveries with the introduction of transgenic technologies and nuclear cloning. The two volumes combine techniques in a variety of different systems and covers topics including sperm and egg activation, motility, fertilization, nuclear development, nuclear cloning, molecular characterization, imaging cell structures, cryopreservation of germ cells, and other specific techniques that will advance the investigator's knowledge of germ cells. Volume 1 is focused on sperm cells, oocyte analysis, oocyte maturation, fertilization, and preparation techniques. This book will be of interest to a wide range of scientists including molecular biologists, reproductive biologists, physiologists and clinicians who need a set of reliable protocols to complete their research.
