Required Text

The required readings will be taken from Scott Gilbert, Developmental biology, 7th edition. For assigned readings, see Course schedule.
We will also be reading selected sections from the associated Web site
http://www.devbio.com ). These will be supplemented by journal articles and reviews during the course of the semester. My assumption is that you are familiar with the electronic and print resources of the Libraryand will make use of them. Refer to Pechenik, A Short Guide to Writing About Biologyor similar writing manual for writing assignments.


I will be using a combination of oral and written presentations, class participation and exams to arrive at your grade. A significant portion will come from lab, especially your research projects.
