The first edition, published 20 years go, featured four volumes, with topics arranged A to Z, from "abortion" to "zygotic genomic activation." In the second edition, Skinner, distinguished professor and founding director of the Center for Reproductive Biology, expanded the number of volumes to six, nearly doubled the number of chapters, and organized the volumes under topic areas.
Concomitant with this cellular event, zygotic genome activation (ZGA) is triggered, and oocyte-specific components degrading by ubiquitin-mediated proteasomal pathway (Roest et al., 2004), and modulating control of maternal transcripts is switched to zygotic transcripts ultimately (Lee et al., 2014).
The difficulty of obtaining viable seeds through crosses has increased interest in studies about in vitro germination of zygotic embryos, since most of the seeds have some form of abnormalities because of the absence or deformation of the embryo and/or endosperm (Asif et al., 2001).
