EBIO 4440 - Animal Developmental Diversity Course uri icon



  • Surveys development in a range of vertebrate and invertebrate systems to reconstruct the common bilatorian ancestor, and elucidate the developmental genetic changes underlying animal diversification. Lab focuses on vertebrate embryos and explores key methods in evolutionary developmental biology including in situ hybridization, embryo microinjection, and transgenesis. Recommended prerequisites: MCDB 1150 or EBIO 1210 and MCDB 2150 or EBIO 2070 (minimum grade C-). Same as EBIO 5440 and MCDB 4441 and MCDB 5441.
