Developmental Biology Courses and Learning Resources
Advanced Developmental Biology.
This course features an in-depth analysis of the current literature in developmental
biology with emphasis on the coordinated regulation of gene expression. Classes are
designed to include lectures by the instructors and discussions by students of assigned
papers that relate to the lecture topics.
Virtual Lab. This interactive laboratory, developed with Shockwave, demonstrates how
an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) is carried out and some of the experimental
problems that may be encountered. By completing this exercise, students will gain a better
understanding of experimental design, key concepts in immunological reactions, and
interpretation of data -- and have fun doing it!
