BIO 352 - Developmental Biology

3.00 credits.
This course addresses how differently gene expression, physical properties of cells, and signaling between cells contribute to development from a fertilized egg into a complex adult. We will explore how differences in development underlie the diversity of animal species. Medical applications are emphasized, including the role of developmental processes in cancer and diseases of aging, as well as effects of pollutants and other environmental factors on development. *Prerequisite(s): BIO 211 . Hours: 3. Fall semester, alternate years.
