  • Journey From Zygote To Embryo To Fetus
    485 words
    "From the very moment that the sperm hits the egg, a precarious trip on the thin edge of biological extinction has begun" (Ralph Blair, Nevertheless Joy! ). The developing person is no less a wonder after birth than in the womb. The time spent in the womb, before birth, is so amazing. The journey from zygote to embryo to fetus is a beautiful trip. From the union of sperm and egg to birth of the newborn, development progresses in an orderly, though fragile, sequence. Fewer than half of fertilized...
  • Surface Cells Of The Animal Region
    842 words
    Mechanisms of Epiboly of ectoderm in the Xenopus Laevis embryo Introduction Epiboly is a movement of gastrulation in the amphibian embryo, whereby ectoderm al precursors expand to cover the entire embryo. This process occurs in the surface and deep layer cells in the animal and marginal regions. Three rounds of cell division occur in the deep cells, while they also rearrange to form fewer layers. Superficial cells elongate by cell division while flattening, which gives them greater surface area ...

  • Successful Cloning Of Human Embryos
    826 words
    Abstract from: Cloning: Where Do We Draw the Line? The first attempt in cloning was conducted in 1952 on a group of frogs. The experiment was a partial success. The frog cells were cloned into other living frogs however, only one in every thousand developed normally, all of which were sterile. The rest of the frogs that survived grew to abnormally large sizes. In 1993, scientist and director of the in vito lab at George Washington University, Jerry Hall and associate Robert Stillman, reported th...
  • Stem Cell Research In Order
