Friday Harbor Comparative Embryology Course – Applications Still Open

There are still a few spots open in the Comparative Invertebrate Embryology course at the Friday Harbor Labs. As I described in a previous post, it’s a great opportunity to see the diversity of developmental processes among animal phyla. Of course this would be valuable for people interested in evo-devo, but it would also be valuable for everyone from bioengineers, who might be inspired by seeing how cells and tissues organize themselves in different organisms, to ecologists, who might gain a deeper understanding of early life stages.

If you are interested in the course, please see the course description at: http://depts.washington.edu/fhl/studentSummer2015.html#SumA-4 . One change from my last post is that Dr. Billie Swalla, a great evolutionary developmental biologist, and the director of the Friday Harbor Labs, will now be co-teaching it with me.
