Framing Question

How do the methods and tools of developmental biology help us understand cause and effect relationships during embryogenesis? (correlation, gain of function and loss of function; molecular, cellular, tissue, organ)

Learning Objectives

  • Design an experiment to detect the identification and/or position of potential stem cells in a tissue that is known to renew itself (e.g. skin, intestinal epithelium). Include positive and negative controls (one of each) that you would perform and the purpose of each control.
  • Given an article about the use of specific reagents in a developing organism and resulting phenotype(s), propose and explain potential mechanisms (e.g. induction, gene knockout) and give other examples using the same mechanisms.
