BIOL 4542

GENES & DEVELOPMENT

(Formerly ZOOL 4270, 022.427) An in depth examination of selected topics in embryonic development, emphasizing the genetic control of the cell and molecular mechanisms that direct embryogenesis. The course will focus primarily on vertebrate development, but insights provided by studies on invertebrates will also be covered. Prerequisites: BIOL 2520 (ZOOL 2280, 022.228) or BIOL 2521 (ZOOL 2281)(C); and BIOL 2540 (ZOOL 2150, 022.215) (C); or consent of department.
