BIOL 4390K:Developmental Biology

3 Class Hours 3 Laboratory Hours 4 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: (BIOL 3300  and BIOL 3300L ) and BIOL 3410  
Students will explore the fundamental questions of developmental biology , focusing on both classical experiments and modern molecular and genetic techniques. Students will investigate how differential gene expression and cell-cell communication generate new tissue types, specify the body axes, form the nervous system, and determine sex. Students will explore the role of development in human health and disease. In the laboratory, students will conduct experiments to test hypotheses about the mechanisms of cellular differentiation and morphogenesis.
