Beck, C. and Slack, J., 2001. An amphibian with ambition: a new role for Xenopus in the 21st century. Genome Biology, 2 (review).
Much of our knowledge about the mechanisms of vertebrate early development comes from studies using Xenopus laevis. The recent development of a remarkably efficient method for generating transgenic embryos is now allowing study of late development and organogenesis in Xenopus embryos. Possibilities are also emerging for genomic studies using the closely related diploid frog Xenopus tropicalis.
