Study questions Lectures 1 and 2: What factors contribute to development of birth defects? In which period of human development is the embryo most susceptible to developing a birth defect? What developmental events occur during this time period? Why does a human embryo not usually develop birth defects if something goes wrong in the first two weeks of gestation? What developmental events occur during this time period? Define and provide examples of regional specification, cell differentiation, and morphogenesis How is growth regulated during development? How are germ cells different from somatic cells? How are they similar? How does specification of germ cells differ between drosophila and mammals? How is the production of germ cells similar between drosophila and mammals? How can the size of the egg influence subsequent developmental events? In general, what factors are present in the egg and what general functions do they serve? How will this differ between very large eggs and small eggs? How does cleavage differ from typical somatic cell division? How is the developing egg that arrested in Meiotic prophase I different from: meiotic metaphase I, Meiotic anaphase I, or ovulated? Consider: DNA and tubulin arrangement.
