Developmental Biology

By The Saylor Foundation

Abstract

In this course, the student will learn about the field of developmental biology from its origins to the present day. The course will take a look at historical experiments as well as modern techniques and the mechanisms of development. The student will follow a variety of metazoan organisms from their start at fertilization through the stages of their development and on to entire organismal and post-embryonic development, learning along the way about the molecular and genetic regulations involved in these processes. This free course may be completed online at any time. See course site for detailed overview and learning outcomes. (Biology 310)
