BIOLOGY 410. Developmental Biology. 3 Credits.
This course covers both the classical experiments that contributed to our understanding of developmental biology and the recent explosion of information about development made possible by a combination of genetic, cellular, and molecular approaches. Examples from vertebrate and invertebrate systems will be used to illustrate underlying principles and concepts. Topics include axis formation, induction, morphogenesis, embryonic pattern formation, cell differentiation, and organogenesis.
P: Biology 303 or 307 or Hum Biol 310 with at least a C grade.
