ANAT2341 Lab 10
2. Organogenesis Lab
In this lab there will be two main activities:
1. We will open up fertilized eggs with life chicken embryos at around early to late stage gastrulation, ie after 12-24 hours of development. In preparation of this class, please watch this video showing instructions how to open fertile eggs (1 to 2.30 minutes) and some basic experimentation.
2. We will also slice up some flatworms/planarians to witness their capacity to fully regenerate their body parts within two weeks. In preparation of this practical class, please watch the following movie of this amazing little creature featuring Alejandro Sánchez Alvarado, a pioneer in the stem cell field who uses planarians for his research: .
Practical Class Notes will be available on Moodle
