BMS-UY 2612 Stem Cells and Development

2 Credits
This course follows the traditional approach to developmental biology. Starting with mechanisms of developmental organization and patterning, cell-cell communication and stem cells biology we will review the development in several model organisms, including Drosophila, amphibians, and birds. However, the main focus will be on mammalian development with detailed discussion of processes such as fertilization, gastrulation, neurulation, somitogenesis, development of the respiratory and digestive systems, and limb development. Special sections will be dedicated to birth defects, interplay between the environment and development and regeneration across species.
