Early events in development will be the focus of the course including how cells divide, differentiate, and form tissues and organs in the correct position. Primary developmental processes including fertilization, cleavage, gastrulation, neurulation and organogenesis will be studied, using a variety of model systems. The organizational structure of the course includes lectures by CDB and guest faculty, with discussion sessions approximately every two weeks.
