- Comparative Placentation
This Volume of animal placentas was created to assist with the examination and evaluation of the many different types of mammalian placentas. It is primarily directed to the veterinary pathologist, the zoo veterinarians and others who have an interest in understanding the bewildering variety of placental forms.
(Graduate) Program in Developmental Biology
The Program in Developmental Biology is an interinstitutional and interdepartmental program which enlists 45 faculty members from 11 different departments and three different institutions, including Baylor College of Medicine, The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, and Rice University. These institutions are located in the Texas Medical Center and within easy walking distance of Baylor College of Medicine. The Program provides research training in developmental biology for graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. The faculty members in the Program all use molecular and genetic approaches to study pattern formation in Dictyostelium discoideum, Drosophila, C. elegans, mouse, Xenopus, and zebrafish. The major aspects of study are: neural development, cancer biology, muscle and heart development, bone and skin development, homeobox genes, limb development, cell lineage specification, eye development, X chromosome dosage compensation, reproductive development, oogenesis, cell death, and plant differentiation. The Program favors a cross-species approach and is especially eager to attract graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who wish to explore how recent exciting findings made in Dictyostelium, Drosophila, C. elegans and vertebrates can be extended to other species, including humans. keywords: developmental biology, molecular biology, genetics
