BIOL 306 - Developmental Biology


4 Credit(s)

Students examine major events occurring in embryological development using examples taken from a wide range of organisms. Emphasis is placed on recent experimental findings concerning initiation and regulation of development at the cellular and molecular levels. Relationships between development and evolution, as well as special topics from human embryology, are considered. In a laboratory sequence that focuses on model organisms, students perform studies of comparative development and design and conduct independent experiments to elucidate developmental mechanisms. Fulfills one cell and molecular biology elective.
3 hours laboratory. 3 hours lecture.
Prerequisite(s): BIOL 261 .
