Course Description

This laboratory course introduces students to both classical and modern experimental approaches for discovering developmental mechanisms, using model systems including sea urchin, chick, Xenopus, Drosophila, Caenorhabditis, and zebrafish. Students document major cellular and developmental events in embryogenesis of these organisms, and conduct experiments to investigate the cellular, molecular, and genetic bases of morphogenesis, pattern development, and developmental determination. Prerequisites: BIOL 114 and BIOL 109-110 or BIOL 109-111. Prerequisite or co-requisite: BIOL 321.
