Chick Neural Tube Explant Culture
Authors:  Zhanna Alekseenko, Elisabet Andersson and José M. Dias, date: 10/05/2015, view: 8426, Q&A: 0
The neural tube explant culture technique allows in vitro culturing of small pieces of neural tissue isolated from e.g., chick or mouse embryonic tissue in a matrix of collagen for defined periods of time. This method can be used ...
