Explore the process of animal development through lectures, readings, and discussion of papers from the primary literature, with an emphasis on vertebrates and focusing on the cellular, genetic, and molecular mechanisms of development, including cell adhesion, differentiation, determination, and signaling, from fertilization through gastrulation, neurulation, and morphogenesis.

Learning Goals:   Course Learning Goals:Developmental biology is one of the most integrative subfields of biology combining molecular biology, cellular biology, biochemistry, anatomy, evolutionary biology, and ecology. Many research labs in developmental biology are working on questions that have medical implications. My goals for you this semester include:1. Compare and contrast major developmental processes in invertebrates and vertebrates including specification of primary tissue layers, specification of the axis, neural specification, and limb development.2. Describe common techniques for answering research questions in developmental biology.3. Demonstrate how to write a grant proposal including how to ask a testable research question.4. Communicate the scientific literature through oral presentation.
