BIOL 354 - Developmental Biology
Embryonic development with an emphasis on the molecular mechanisms involved in fertilization, pattern formation, and cell differentiation. Three hours lecture and four hours laboratory per week.
Prerequisites: CHEM 361 and BIOL 183.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Describe the basic concepts of developmental biology including fertilization, pattern formation, cell differentiation and organogenesis
- Compare and contrast stages of development in vertebrate and non-vertebrate organisms including the molecular signaling events involved.
- Design and perform experiments to examine the effect of environmental contaminants on early embryo development including data collection and analysis.
- Apply basic developmental concepts and interpret data presented in primary literature articles.
