Previous knowledge expected

basics in molecular biology, genetics, cell biological methods

Objective (expected results of study and acquired competences)

The goal is to get a basic understanding of the genetic principles of embryo and organ development as well as cell differentiation in plants and animals.
After taking this course students know some theoretical basics and methodologies of developmental genetics.
