Molecular and Cellular Approach to the Study of Development Biology of Mammalian Germ Cells. 1.Regulation of tissue stem/germ cells or germline stem cells differentiated into germ cells. 2.Regulative mechanism of mammalian oogenesis in vitro (i.e. mature oocytes developed from primordial germ cells); 3.Meiotic entry and cell-cell interactions during germ cell cyst breakdown and primordial follicular formation.
