This book combines the most recent knowledge on the maternal, i.e. oocyte/egg-specific, molecules and processes. The volume covers the most recent advances in a plethora of subjects such as: maternal transfer of immunity, localized RNAs functions and mechanisms of RNA localization, transcriptional repression of maternal messages, maternal inheritance and maternal role of CRISPR/Cas9-based genome editing, chromatin remodeling and epigenetic modifications, maternal function of nucleosomes, maternal mitochondria and energy supply, role of bacterial symbionts and their maternal transmission, acquisition of oocyte polarity and evolution of maternal effect genes, germ plasm and oosome origin and functions, mechanisms of oocyte activation and soma germ cells communication.
Currently, no other book on the market combines such a comprehensive list of subjects in one volume. Moreover, the information provided is a cross-section through oocytes from various invertebrate and vertebrate species, which is another unique feature of this book. The readers, therefore, get a completely new and invaluable perspective on all covered subjects.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This book presents different aspects of oocytes maturation in several animal models as the interactions oocyte-environment, the specific functions of oocytes molecules and organelles regulated by epigenetic and translational mechanisms and the evolution of maternal factors. ... the text written in such a way as to be easily understandable even by those who are not very familiar with female gametogenesis. ... recommended to everyone interested in the wonderful world of the little laboratory of molecular biology that is the oocyte." (Manuela Monti, European Journal of Histochemistry, Vol. 61, 2017)
