    Description

    Represents an overview on developmental biology, a central organizing discipline in biology that relates cell- and molecular biology, anatomy, ecology, evolution and medicine to each other. The course provides the basic conceptual background of the anatomical, experimental, genetic, cellular, molecular and biotechnical approaches to modern developmental biology. It integrates the discussion of the early development of several important model organisms into concise units that detail cleavage, gastrulation and axis formation simultaneously. Expermimental approaches include classical genetics, complementation, RNA interference, CRISPR-mediated gene editing, transgenesis and more. 

    Training objectives This lecture is an introduction into some of the most popular animal model systems used for the study of development. These include Xenopus laevis, Mouse, Drosophila melanogaster, Caenorahbditis elegans and Zebrafish. Through this lecture, the student will understand the value of different technical approaches that are being used for the study of development. Further emphasis will be on presenting key experiments and results obtained with each system. Topics may vary from year to year but are likely to include transcriptional, translational, post-translational and epigenetic control of gene expression.
