BIO 317/317L: Developmental Biology

Instructor: Dr. Craig Magie
Credits: 4

This course is an introduction to the basic developmental processes that enable a single cell to differentiate and create entire organ systems. Various animal models are explored, compared and integrated to illustrate key molecular and cellular events that lead to the formation of an entire organism. Must be taken in conjunction with BIO 317L, the project-based laboratory that accompanies BIO 317 and that uses a variety of different model systems to examine development. (Image reference)
