In the former part of this course, students will be lectured about fundamental principles of reproduction and development in animals. In the middle part of this course, students will read papers in turn to improve the skills of logical thinking and to learn methodologies necessary for biological studies. Finally, each student will make a presentation of a paper. In this course, students will acquire knowledge and skills related to DP1 and DP3.
The goals of this lecture are as follows;
1) understanding of fundamental principles of reproduction and development in animals.
2) learning methodologies necessary for biological studies.
3) improving reading, logical thinking, and presentation skills.
The final grade will be based on reading of papers (40 points) and presentation (60 points). A score of 60 points or more (out of 100 points) is passed. Students with attendance rates of less than 60% (less than 9 lectures) will not qualify for the evaluation.
