Quicktime movie

Movie shows in vitro development of a human morula to blastocyst stage occurring between day 3 and day 6 post-fertilization.

00:07 day 5 - contraction

00:08 - re-expansion

00:15 - contraction (collapse)

00:16 - re-expansion (blastocoel enlargement)

00:17 - commence blastocyst hatching (1 o'clock position)
