CELL 413 - Embryology Laboratory

Fall 2003; Fri: 1:00 PM - 1:50 PM; 402 Israel

Instructor: Dr. Ken Muneoka, 2000 Percival Stern, 865-5546, kmuneoka@tulane.edu


The following developmental stages of the chick and pig embryos have been serially sectioned and labeled and unlabeled images of these sections have been compiled.

On-line Developmental Atlas
24-hour Chick Embryo
33-hour Chick Embryo
48-hour Chick Embryo
72-hour Chick Embryo
10-mm Pig Embryo

The goal of the lab is to introduce you to a microscopic examination of the vertebrate embryo. Histological sections of the chick and the pig embryo are used to illustrate changes that occur as the embryo develops. Serial sections of these embryos have been scanned and can be visualized from any computer station on campus or via modem from a remote site 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This digital atlas is experimental.

You will be responsible for all labeled structures in the digital atlas.
