Developmental Biology covers all aspects of biochemistry in a nutshell; many key discoveries in areas such as signal transduction, cell migration or cell-to-cell communication were made analyzing embryonic development.
This lecture will provide an overview on the basic concepts of developmental biology. How does an embryo develop? How is the genetic information retrieved and interpreted? How is this information transferred to cellular signaling leading to coordinated growth?
Furthermore it will introduce to the methods used in developmental biology, from the generation of animal models to their molecular analysis.
The lecture will also span from development to regeneration and degeneration in adult life; which developmental principles are redeployed, why do they sometimes fail?
