BIOL 204: Mechanisms of Development

Term: Spring

Credits: 4, 1

Degree Requirements:

Development is the process by which a multi-cellular organism constructs itself from a single egg cell. This course examines the cellular and genetic mechanisms required for pattern formation, differentiation, morphogenesis and other events that shape the organism during development. These phenomena will be explored in the context of evolution and medical applications. Modern experimental approaches and current models will be emphasized.
