Avian Embryo Development: Micromanipulation, Teratology and Morphological

Avian Embryo Development: Micromanipulation, Teratology and Morphological

BW01 Basement of the Jrow Science Center

This is a fairly standard avian embryology lab.  The fertile eggs are
incubated windowed and examined by the class at the 1-7 day stages.  Lessons
are given in microsurgery and teratology applied at the 3-6 day stages.  The
students are allowed to make their own microsurgical tools using glass
pipettes. We use pen-strep for sterility and various teratogens for
malformation. The manipulated embryos are then incubated for no more than 11
days.  They are then culled humanely and disposed of or fixed properly for
display.
