For the first time, Nobel Prize winner, Edward B. Lewis' research papers are published within one volume
Papers are organized into sections that reflect the focus of the research
Commentaries by Howard Lipshitz highlight key methods and results by explaining the science so it is accessible to upper-level undergraduates, graduate students, and professional researchers
Provides source material for advanced undergraduate and graduate level courses in genetics, developmental biology, radiation and cancer
