An intensive 13 day laboratory and lecture course for advanced graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who seek a broad view of the modern issues of Developmental Biology. Exceptional Latin American undergraduate students may also apply.
Related lectures and laboratories will provide the student with the state-of-the-art of paradigms, problems and methodologies on modern Developmental Biology. The animal model used for laboratories will be zebrafish and locally available fishes; insects (Drosophila, Manduca sexta and others); frog, sea urchin, chick and planarians.
