Vade Mecum: An Interactive Guide to Developmental Biology
Over 140 interactive videos and 300 labeled photographs take the student through the life cycles of model organisms used in developmental biology laboratories. The easy-to-use videos provide students with the concepts, vocabulary, and motivation to enter the laboratory fully prepared. A chapter on zebrafish addresses how to raise the organism and the effects of various teratogens on embryonic development. The CD-ROM also includes chapters on: the slime mold, Dictyostelium discoideum; planarian; sea urchin; the fruit fly, Drosophila melanogaster; chick; and amphibian.
