BIOL 371 - Developmental Biology

3 Credit Hours
Developmental biology studies the genetic, molecular, and cellular mechanisms involved in growth and development of animals. Understanding how a complex organism develops has provided a foundation for understanding congenital and genetic conditions related to human health. This course places emphasis on vertebrates and vertebrate systems. Topics range from body axis patterning, organ system development including limbs, the brain, and the reproductive system, and congenital defects including Holt-Oram syndrome, cleft pallet, and polydactyly. Lecture.
