BIOL 3542

Developmental Biology

Principles and concepts of development biology will be presented including early embryo development, tissue patterning, morphogenesis, germ cell formation, stem cell biology, organ and nervous system development, growth and regeneration. Fundamental developmental concepts as well as the cellular, genetic and molecular mechanisms behind development will be convered utilizing invertebrate, vertebrate and plant examples. Not to be held with the former BIOL 2540. Prerequisites: BIOL 2500 or BIOL 2501 (C+) or better and BIOL 2520 or BIOL 2521 (C+) or better, or consent of the department.
