Modern developmental biology research combines the knowledge and techniques of two centuries of embryology with the molecular and cell biology techniques of the past two decades. Students will learn molecular biology and microscopy techniques including pcr, microinjection, and fluorescent microscopy. Substantial class time will be spent discussing experimental design and hypothesis testing.
Logical Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning
Students will generate hypotheses that are testable, learning logic by doing and thinking and speaking
Students will generate, analyze and present quantitative data.
