Studies the genetic, molecular, cellular and morphological changes that occur during development. Current mechanistic concepts in development will be presented along with classical embryology to provide a comprehensive understanding of the processes that direct a fertilized single-celled egg to develop into a complex multi-cellular organism. Particular attention will be paid to recent molecular mechanisms. This is an elective course for Biology and Health Sciences majors. Three hours of lecture per week. The prerequisite is Biology 217 (Cell Biology). Not offered every semester.
