This course aims to provide students an overview on the development of a complex, multi-organs organism from a single cell unit known as zygote, and the generation of inheritable gametes for fertilization that later form the zygote. Students will learn the concepts of cell growth, differentiation, morphogenesis, senescence and the underlying regulatory mechanisms through a series of lectures, tutorials and practical sessions. Students will also learn the most-updated development and the applications in the field. Students will need to participate in tutorial discussions; to complete sets of problem-based learning questions and laboratory reports; and to complete a final exam.
