BIO 410 - Developmental Biology

4 credit(s)
How does an organism arise from a single cell? How does fertilization occur and what is directing and controlling development into a complex, multicellular organism? Recent technological advances have begun to shed light on these wonders. Both basic life sciences and clinical medicine have benefited from discoveries in developmental biology. Developmental Biology is a lecture/laboratory course that’s designed to introduce students to the cellular and molecular mechanisms of gametogenesis, fertilization, and organogenesis in vertebrates. The laboratory portion of the course covers different aspects of vertebrate development using live cellular and embryonic materials. The course also covers cutting edge topics like human embryonic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells.
Prerequisite(s): BIO 272W  and BIO 273W .
Laboratory fee.
