BSCI 417 Developmental Biology
A general course designed to introduce students to the developmental biology of animals. Emphasis is placed on understanding how a single-celled fertilized egg develops into a complex multicellular organism by the processes of cell division, differentiation, growth, and morphogenesis. Lectures stress experimental approaches to investigating development, including classic embryology and modern molecular genetics. Not open to students with credit in BIOL 417. Prerequisite: BSCI 350 or BIOL 350 and BSCI 416 or BIOL 416 or consent of the instructor.
