Primary Instructor:

This course provides students with the opportunity to study first-hand the development of a number of live vertebrate and invertebrate embryos, specifically sea urchin, amphibian, and chick embryos. In addition to observation of normal embryogenesis, students perform several of the experimental analyses that have contributed to a basic understanding of developmental processes.

Exercises focus on fertilization, developmental morphology, induction, determination and differentiation of various tissues, metamorphosis, and regeneration. Students perform "in vitro" culturing of embryonic tissues, chemical and surgical manipulation of embryos. In addition to one hour of lecture and one scheduled three-hour laboratory session each week, students are expected to spend about three additional hours in the laboratory each week.

Grades are based on two laboratory tests, a term paper with poster presentation, and lab notebook evaluation. Maintenance of a lab notebook for a complete and accurate record of observations and experimental results is required. There is a required lab manual.
