Cell biologists have recently come to understand that asymmetry of division is an important regulatory phenomenon in the fate of a cell. In adult organisms asymmetric divisions regulate the stem cell reservoir and are a source of the drift that contributes to aging. This book describes the phenomenon in different organisms and addresses its implications for the development of the organism, cell differentiation, human aging and the biology of cancers.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"Asymmetric cell division is a process whereby one cell generates two daughter cells that differ in size or developmental potential . ... The book is targeted at scientists working in the field ... . it would be appropriate for a biology department's library. ... Scientists or students, however, who work in this field and who have already read some of the mainstream review articles, might find this book a useful addition for understanding the less well-covered areas of asymmetric cell division research." (Juergen Knoblich, Development, Vol. 134 (24), 2007)
