Skills to be acquired in this module

Upon successful completion of this course, students have skills in methods of developmental biology:

   are capable of performing live embryo husbandry

   are able to carry out in-ovo stainings

   are familiar with the use of embryonic stage discrimination standards for model organisms

   document the observed embryonic stages by drawings with anatomical labelling

   are familiar with tissue preparation (including cryosectioning), the use of different molecular markers, and immunohistological staining methods

   microscopy, data analysis, and photographic data documentation

   know the standards of proper documentation of research data and the universal format of a lab notebook

   know how to carry out formal laboratory reports (and the structure of a scientific paper)

   have basic knowledge in the field of auditory system development

   have basic knowledge of the organisation of the auditory system across vertebrate groups

   have basic knowledge of the development of the middle and inner ear, as well as selected auditory brain centres

are able to summarize current hypotheses about the evolution of the auditory system in vertebrates skills:
