Principles of Development

Prerequisites: BIOL 205 and either BIOL 214, BIOL 218, or BIOL 230. Sophomores by permission. An examination of the processes by which a single cell, the fertilized egg, gives rise to a multicellular organism.

This course will integrate these new methods and approaches with those of classical embryology in the study of several model organisms. Offered alternate years. III.O, V.8a
