: The Fast Fern
The aquatic fern,
(sometimes called “water clover”), is a useful teaching organism because of the speed with which gametophyte development proceeds.
A Cross-Curricular Molecular Genetics Lab in Embryology
In response to the need for additional interdisciplinary, research-based labs that facilitate student learning across the biology curriculum, a student research project was developed as collaboration ...
A Developmental Study of the Japanese Medaka
and the Water Fern
This exercise is a demonstration and is observation based. It requires students to carefully study the materials provided.
A Holistic Approach to Teaching a Laboratory, Using Sea Urchin Development as an Example System
This exercise uses brainstorming, writing, and oral presentation techniques within the framework of a laboratory to illustrate the basic principles of early development. In groups, students learn how ...
A Practical Guide to the Use of Cellular Slime Molds for laboratory Exercises and Experiments
The cellular slime mold,
, is particularly well suited for laboratory instruction in a variety of areas, including cellular biology, developmental biology, biochemistry,...
A Question-based Project that Uses a MAP Kinase Western Blot to Examine the Role of Calcium in Sea Urchin Fertilization
Sea urchins are a well-established model system for studying fertilization and early development. Urchin gametes are also an excellent tool for teaching cell biology in the laboratory, allowing studen...
An Examination of the Influence of Diet on the Growth,Development and Survival of
In this multi-week lab, students are asked to design and implement an experiment to investigate how nutrition influences the growth, development and survival of
Chick Embryos in Shell-less Culture
Continuous observation of developing embryos from day 3 up to day 18 of incubation allows students to see differentiation of extra embryonic membranes and circulation, limb bud, heart, and feathers as...
Chicks and their Genes: A Collaborative Method for Teaching Upper-Division Laboratory Courses at a Small Women’s College
Upper-division college biology courses are often taught separately, with information compartmentalized under course titles such as “Animal Behavior” or “Genetics.” The consequence of dividing the biol...
Developmental and Physiological Aspects of the Chicken
A laboratory exercise to explore the basic principles of vertebrate heart development, blood flow and electrical circuitry.
