Paperback - June 2015 - AU $75.00

This special issue is comprised of fifteen research and review manuscripts submitted by speakers at the Satellite Symposium of the World Congress of Reproductive Biology.

This special issue is comprised of fifteen research and review manuscripts submitted by speakers at the Satellite Symposium of the World Congress of Reproductive Biology, entitled 'A Developmental Tale: Metabolism takes Centre Stage', held on 1-2 September 2014 in Edinburgh, Scotland. Topics covered include metabolism of the oocyte and the embryo, new technologies that may further our understanding, novel approaches to elucidate energy production pathways in the blastocyst, the effects of parental diet on embryo metabolism and offspring health, and finally how we might apply this knowledge to prevent or even correct adverse metabolic adaptations and thus improve offspring health in research, agricultural and biomedical settings. These manuscripts provide an authoritative and timely collection of the latest understanding of oocyte and embryo metabolism, and represent a valuable resource for those working in this exciting and expanding field, which has such a large impact on reproductive success. + Full description
