Centrosomes in Development
and Disease

edited by Erich A. Nigg

This book summarizes our current knowledge of the structure, function and evolution of centrosomes and related microtubule-organizing centres.

Reflecting recent discoveries and ongoing research, it emphasizes the role of centrosomes in development and disease, with a particular focus on cancer.
