|A personal message from Dr Mark Hill (May 2020)|
|contributors to the site. The good news is Embryology will remain online and I will continue my association with UNSW Australia. I look forward to updating and including the many exciting new discoveries in Embryology!|
Many universities and research groups hold collections of embryos from many model species. Very few have well-characterised collections of embryos showing human development.
There are also many groups now taking advantage of molecular methods and new imaging techniques to either re-evaluate historic collections, or analysing new embryonic material. Some of these new databases are being made available online for research purposes.
