Seminar in Developmental Genetics
Listed in: Biology, as BIOL-57
Caroline E. Goutte (Section 01)
Much of our molecular understanding of developmental biology stems from genetic analysis of mutants in model systems. In this seminar we will consider a range of developmental events, such as cell specialization and cell communication, in the well-studied Drosophila and C. elegans model systems. Reading from scientific journals, we will follow a variety of genetic approaches that have uncovered the molecular mechanisms responsible for these developmental events. Class discussions will focus on experimental design, data interpretation, and model building. Assignments will include scientific writing and oral presentations.
