This course covers the mechanisms of development at the molecular, cellular, and organismal levels. Special attention will be paid to the process of scientific discovery: the experiments. Students will read and discuss both original research articles and the secondary review literature. We will discuss ethical and medical considerations for some of the topics covered.
It's an extraordinary time to learn Developmental Biology! Topics can include aging, the environmental effects on development, genetic approaches, cancer, reproduction, growth, and much more, all tied to Development.
