Section Description

Welcome to Developmental Biology, one of the most dynamic and intriguing biological disciplines. In this course we will let the embryos guide us, consistent with comments by one of the field's early experts, Victor Hamburger, who said, "Our real teacher has been and still is the embryo-who is, incidentally, the only teacher who is always right."

Section Expectation

Developmental Biology 11th Edition (2013) by Scott F. Gilbert. Sinauer Associates, Inc. Sunderland, MA. The 9th edition of the text as well as the 10th edition may also be used. I will bridge concepts between editions as best I can.


Exams will be based on material covered in class unless I specifically tell you otherwise. The final exam will be mandatory to pass the course.
