BIO 6064 - Developmental Biology


(3)

Concepts emerging from the union of the two disciplines of evolution and development that help us better understand both the process of development and of the diversity of life forms are central to this course. Emphasis will be placed on the concepts of modularity, developmental master control genes (toolkit genes) and genetic switches that are the keys to explaining how the diversity within the body plans of animals develop. These topics will be addressed from the perspective of teaching for conceptual understanding. Lecture and lab.
