BIOL322 - Developmental Biology


Developmental biology describes the transformation of a fertilized egg into a complex, multicellular organism. This course focuses on the genetic, cellular, and morphological pathways necessary for the embryonic and postnatal development of select invertebrates (roundworm, insects) and vertebrates (amphibians, fish, chicks, and mammals). The various experimental techniques used to study embryonic development will also be explored. Additional topics include metamorphosis, regeneration, aging, cancer, and the role of development in evolution. Online tools will be utilized to help illustrate dynamic concepts and enhance understanding. This course is an in-­-depth review of complex biological topics, and is designed for students concentrating in the natural sciences. Prerequisites: SCIN211, BIOL241
