  • molecular
  • However, in the past couple of decades, a wealth of information on plant morphology, coupled with modern molecular techniques has helped shed light on the conserved and unique developmental patterns in the plant kingdom also. (wikipedia.org)
  • While the first half of the century saw expansion in developmental knowledge at the tissue and the organ level, in the latter half, especially since the 1990s, there has also been a strong impetus on gaining molecular information. (wikipedia.org)
  • The recent spurt in information on various plant-related processes has largely been a result of the revolution in molecular biology. (wikipedia.org)
  • oncogenes
  • He went on to graduate school at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and was awarded a PhD in 1984 for work on the regulation of gene expression in the Ras subfamily of oncogenes supervised by Robert Weinberg based in the MIT Department of Biology. (wikipedia.org)
  • whole organism
  • Epigenetic perspectives were often dependent on forms of teleological reasoning (see the entry on teleological notions in biology ) to account for why interactions among homogeneous components eventually result in a complex, integrated whole organism. (stanford.edu)
  • Particular attention is given to genetic and epigenetic programming, cell signalling and whole organism biology. (bath.ac.uk)
  • focuses
  • It represents an exemplary area of contemporary experimental biology that focuses on phenomena that have puzzled natural philosophers and scientists for more than two millennia. (stanford.edu)
  • The Urology Developmental Biology and Aging program focuses on fundamental mechanisms through which the lower genitourinary (GU) tract develops and ages. (nih.gov)
  • Development
  • Until the mid- 1800s, many naturalists supported a theory of development called epigenesis, which held that the eggs of organisms were undifferentiated, but had a developmental potential which could be directed by certain external forces. (encyclopedia.com)
  • Other naturalists supported a theory of development called preformationism, which held that the entire complex morphology of a mature organism is present in miniature form in the egg, a developmental form called the homunculus. (encyclopedia.com)
  • Thus modern developmental biology views development as the expression of a preformed genetic program which controls the epigenetic development of an undifferentiated egg into a morphologically complex adult. (encyclopedia.com)
  • However in 1964 the Society for the Study of Growth and Development in the United States had also voted to change to the same name, and in 1966 took over sponsorship of the journal Developmental Biology. (wikipedia.org)
  • foster
  • Similarly, a deeper understanding of developmental biology can foster greater progress in the treatment of congenital disorders and diseases, e.g. studying human sex determination can lead to treatment for disorders such as congenital adrenal hyperplasia . (princeton.edu)
  • applicants
  • In addition to the standard UCL Summer School entry criteria, applicants will be expected to have knowledge of basic biology. (ucl.ac.uk)
  • biomedical
  • Highly practical and richly annotated, the three volumes of Developmental Biology Protocols describe multiple experimental systems and details techniques adopted from the broadest array of biomedical disciplines. (springer.com)
  • fundamental
  • The goal of this Unit is based on the simple, but fundamental, concept that an understanding of normal developmental regulation should provide us with a better understanding of the basis of human pathology. (institut-curie.org)
