Description

How does a fertilized egg develop into a complex organism? This course addresses this fundamental question using several animal models (e.g., Drosophila, frogs, fish, mice) as well as the plant Arabidopsis. This is not a survey course, but rather covers specific examples in well-defined systems that serve as paradigms for how development works in general. These examples include cell movement during gastrulation, control of cell division, stem cells and regeneration, cell-cell communication, and regulation of gene expression. The class will emphasize the problem-solving nature of science, and how experimental evidence is used to understand development.

Course Requirements:

Three in-class exams and weekly in-class iClicker quizzes.

Intended Audience:

This course is intended for majors in Biology, CMB, Neuroscience and other natural sciences of all classes. For freshmen and sophomores, this class serves as a nice stepping-stone from 100- to 300-level science courses, particularly in preparation for Genetics (BIOLOGY 305). For upperclassmen, it can serve as an elective to complement more advance courses.
