The genetic control of organogenesis is one of the most exciting areas of study in the field of developmental biology as it brings together in a single model the analysis of cell biology, molecular biology, genetics and in vivo microscopy. Although this discipline was classically restricted to the realm of basic research, recent advances in stem cell biology, organ culture and genetic manipulation ensure that organogenesis will soon be fundamental in applied biomedical studies and thus should form an essential part of any scientific or medical curriculum.
