Principles of Development

Developmental biology is the study of molecular processes underlying the development of organisms from the fertilised egg to a fully-grown individual. Most of the molecular pathways involved are shared across all animals due to our common evolutionary history. The module is aimed at opening the student's understanding of how these pathways work at the genetic level, and how this translates into organismal phenotypes that can be understood in biomedical, evolutionary, and ecological/environmental contexts.
