ANA 201 General Embryolgy
Instructor: Dr. Odetola Amos A., email:email@example.com
Lectures: Friday, 10 am- 12pm, LT1, phone: (+234) 8032072958
Office hours: Thursday, 1.30 to 2.30 PM, Office:
General overview of lecture: The course introduces some fundamental concepts in developmental anatomy including molecular regulation and signaling, gametogenesis, pre-fertilization, fertilization, cleavage, implantation, bilaminar germ disc and gastrulation (Trilaminar germ layer stage).
Prerequisite: The students are expected to have a strong background in the basic biology, particularly about the reproductive system.. Some knowledge of genetics will be of great importance in understanding some concepts of teratology.
Learning outcomes: At the completion of this lecture, students should be able to:
- Enumerate various regulatory molecules that are involved in organogenesis
- describe the cell division
- mention the source of the primordial germ cells
- state the incident or occurrences during the 2nd week of development
- explain ovarian cycle, fertilization, cleavage and implantation in details
- understand the principles of teratology
Assignments: students are going to have three (2) individual and one (1) group assignments throughout the course in addition to a Mid-Term Test and a Final Exam. Assignments are organized and structured as preparation for the midterm and final exam, and are meant to be a studying material for both exams.
Grading: We will assign 10% of this class grade to homeworks, 10% for the programming projects, 10% for the mid-term test and 70% for the final exam. The Final exam is comprehensive.
