Title:Mechanisms of Development
Credit value:.5
Division:Division of Biosciences
Module organiser:Prof. Claudio Stern
Organiser's location:Anatomy Building
Available for students in Year(s):3,
Module prerequisites:No specific requirements but students should have taken 2nd year level Developmental Biology (e.g. ANAT2008, BIOL2010, MBBS).  
Module outline:This course will consider the cellular and molecular events which underlie animal development and cell differentiation, drawing on examples of a range of vertebrate and invertebrate organisms. Topics to be covered include maternal, gap and pair-rule genes, imaginal disks and signalling pathways, gastrulation, hindbrain and PNS patterning, limb development and regeneration, neural induction and aspects of development in the human adult. 
Module aims:The course aims to bring the students' knowledge and understanding of developmental biology to the level of current research.  
Module objectives:The objective, to be achieved through lectures and reading of research papers, is to examine the mechanisms of development through a detailed study of the experimental evidence. For students with particular interests in developmental biology, the course ANAT3005 provides practical experience of the four model systems described in the lectures. The course is designed to run concurrently with the lectures in ANAT3003. See the ANAT3005 description for details.
