Abstract: The physical changes that occur from a single fertilized egg to a complex multicellular organism represent one of the most amazing transitions that can be observed in biology. The goals of this course are to learn the patterns of morphological changes that occur in animals, from the formation of eggs and sperm to birth. We will look primarily at the development of the major organ systems and body plan of vertebrates, including comparisons of developmental patterns among vertebrates. In addition, you will learn to find and use primary literature sources to analyze data, and to prepare a presentation. Through the presentation you will teach the class about a specific event in human embryonic development, and how a teratogen may interrupt or alter that event to produce particular birth defects.
