Module description

All animals on this planet develop from a single fertilised egg. In this module you will study different mechanisms and patterns of embryonic development by which a single fertilised egg can give rise to a diversity of animal life. During the module you will focus on specific subjects in the developmental biology of animals including fertilisation, pattern formation in invertebrate and vertebrate embryos, tissue specification, gene regulation, signal transduction, stem cell function, regeneration and evo-devo (evolution of development). This is an advanced module on animal developmental biology and you will investigate frontiers of knowledge and research in this fascinating subject.
