Student Learning Outcomes

1. Successful students in BIOLOGY 476 will be able to integrate topics from molecular biology, cell biology, genetics, and morphology to synthesize a discussion of a specific developmental event.
2. Construct a framework that outlines a specific developmental event in terms of genetic outputs (including epigenetic effects) and environmental inputs, noting how developmental events fit into the larger context of evolution.
3. Analyze and evaluate ethical concerns and assertions related to developing cells and organisms.
