BIO 524 - Evolutionary Development Credits: 3


This course will explore the connection between developmental biology and evolution since it is through the processes of development, and the genes that control those processes, that changes in form arise. Most of the course will be based on discussion of books and primary literature that highlight the major contributions at the intersection of these two fields. Topics that will be discussed include some history of evolutionary thought, gene regulation and body patterning during development, developmental foundations of evolutionary change, and scientific and social implications of this new understanding of evo-devo.

Prerequisite(s): BIO 260.
