Embryology covers the structural and molecular events from conception to the layout of the body plan after about two months of development. Mutations that affect development or increase the likelihood of disease later in life are described. Embryology also presents the development of specific organs and the role development plays in determining the functions of organs.
Embryology uses primarily lecture to deliver content but some content is also discussed in labs.
