    Description

    This lecture teaches specific topics in developmental biology, a central organizing discipline in biology that relates cell- and molecular biology, anatomy, ecology, evolution and medicine to each other. The course provides the basic conceptual background of the anatomical, experimental, genetic, cellular, molecular and biotechnical approaches to modern developmental biology. Current topics are among others: limb formation, metamorphosis, aging, germ line formation and sex determination, fertilization and implications of developmental biology on human medicine.

    Training objectives

    Students who have followed a lecture on basic concepts of developmental biology and SBL.00119 "Molecular genetics of model organism development " will take advantage of this lecture and explore more specific topics on how a fertilized egg becomes a highly sophisticated multicellular organism. Among others, topics will include limb development, gametogenesis, sex determination and medical implications of developmental biology. Students will learn experimental design and how to evaluate scientific results.
