Developmental Biology

Course Number: 
Minimum Credits: 
Developmental Biology encompasses the process of animal conception and development that begins with a single cell and ends with a complex multicellular organism. Upon successful completion of this course, students will understand the importance of egg preparation and the stages of development including fertilization, cleavage, gastrulation, neurulation, organogenesis, limb development, and gametogenesis. Students will integrate their knowledge of genetics and cell biology to understand the complex interplay of signals that direct the organization of developmental processes across Animalia. Prerequisite: BIO 120, 121, 260. Offered alternate spring terms
