Embryology Course at Friday Harbor Labs

Posted by on February 10th, 2016

Applications are still open for the Comparative Invertebrate Embryology course at the Friday Harbor Labs. It’s a great opportunity to work with diverse animal embryos. We attempt to provide an integrated view of animal development, bridging cell and molecular mechanisms with ecological and evolutionary processes. Marine invertebrate development can provide new perspectives on developmental mechanisms, eco-devo,[…]
