Lecture - 2014 Course Introduction
ANAT2341 Course Outline
I will spend the first half going through the current course design, online support and assessment criteria. This is an opportunity to ask the coordinator questions about the course.
Email me for any additional information or to make an appointment.
- Either of the textbooks listed below are recommended for this course and page references to both are given in each lecture.
- Both textbooks available at campus bookshop and online to UNSW students.
- There are additional embryology textbooks that can also be used, consult course organizer.
|The Developing Human: Clinically Oriented Embryology (10th edn)|
UNSW Students have online access to the current 10th edn. through the UNSW Library subscription (with student Zpass log-in).
17-18C Braune - The Position of the Uterus and Fetus at Term (1872)
|Human Embryo Collections|
Wilhelm His (1831-1904)
His's Normentafel (Normal Table)
Franz Keibel (1861 - 1929)
Franz Keibel and Curt Elze (1908) Normal Plates of the Development of the Human Embryo
Franklin Mall (1862-1917)
|Begun by Dr. Hideo Nishimura (1912–1995)|
|Fly Development - The fruitfly (drosophila) was and is the traditional geneticist's tool. It has been transformed to an magnificent embryologist's tool, with developmental mechanisms being uncovered in this system combined with homolgy gene searches in other species. The fly genome was one of the first to be been completely sequenced. In early development nurse cells sacrifice their cytoplasmic contents to allow egg growth and early pattern formation is through the localization of maternal messenger RNAs (mRNAs).|
|Worm Development - Early embryological studies of the worm Caenorhabditis elegans (C.Elegans, so called because of its "elegant" curving movement) characterized the fate of each and every cell in the worm through all stages of development. This worm has recently had its entire genome sequenced.|
|Zebrafish Development - Zebrafish are seen as the latest and greatest "model' for embryological development studies. They can be easily genetically altered and develop as practically "see through" embryos, all internal development can be clearly observed from the outside in the living embryo.|
|In Vitro Fertilization (1978)||Stem Cells (1981)||Molecular Development|
1 August 2014 at 03:53:30 PM (Canberra time), the resident population of Australia is projected to be: 23,550,233.
|Australia’s mothers and babies (2011)||Assisted reproductive technology in Australia and New Zealand (2010)|
|Average maternal age in 2011 was 30.0 years, the same as 2009 but still more than the earlier years (2000, 29.0 years; 2002, 29.4 years).||Assisted Reproductive Technology (ART) was used by 3.8% (2009, 3.6%) of women who gave birth.|
|Victoria - 10 most reported birth anomalies|
|Based upon statistics from the Victorian Perinatal Data Collection Unit in Victoria between 2003-2004.|
