BIOL 369 - Developmental Biology

This course aims to integrate organismal, cellular, genetic and molecular approaches to the study of animal development. We will analyze a diversity of mechanisms, ranging from ones that set up pattern formation in the unfertilized egg to those governing morphogenesis of organ systems. Evolution of developmental mechanisms will also be discussed. The lab component will incorporate both descriptive and experimental embryological techniques. Three lectures and one three-hour laboratory period per week. Prerequisite(s): BIOL 255 , BIOL 260 , BIOL 265 . BIOL 270  is highly recommended. Offered most fall semesters. (4 Credits)
