This book discusses 14 model organisms and are used by thousands of researchers, teachers, and students each year in laboratories and classrooms, around the globe. Though acknowledged in innumerable scientific journal articles, little is generally known about the origin of these collections, how the organisms contained within them have been acquired, and how they are maintained and distributed. Content includes information on the Laboratory Axolotl and Ambystoma Genetic Stock Center, the Arabidopsis Biological Resource Center, The Bacillus Genetic Stock Center/Bacillus subtilis, Genetic resources of rotifers in the genus Brachionus, the Caenorhabditis Genetics Center (CGC) and the Caenorhabditis elegans Natural Diversity Resource, the Chlamydomonas Resource Center, The Zebrafish International Resource Center, the Bloomington Drosophila Stock Center, Fungal Genetics Stock Center, the Peromyscus Genetic Stock Center, the Tetrahymena Stock Center, National Xenopus Resource, Xiphophorus Fishes and the Xiphophorus Genetic Stock Center, ATCC : the biological resource center.

Mouse Models of Cancer - Hard copy
Mouse Models of Cancer by Robert Eferl (Editor); Emilio Casanova (Editor)
Publication Date: 2015-01-31
This volume is essential for geneticists, molecular biologists, biochemists, and medical doctors interested in the use of mouse models in cancer research. Recent genome studies, together with refined genetic engineering techniques, have greatly increased the value of using mice for research on cancer and other human disorders. The chapters of this book will support scientists in choosing the most suitable mouse models for their research questions.
Wildlife Study Design provides researchers and resource managers with a comprehensive guide to planning new studies by covering all aspects of study design, including surveys of major types of studies and variables, impact assessment, statistics, sampling techniques, inventorying and monitoring, and analysis of data. The book includes a practical, step-by-step guide to setting up a new study.
