Developmental Biology

Developmental Biology mainly focus on mechanisms of development, differentiation, and growth in animals and plants at the molecular, cellular, genetic and evolutionary levels. Areas of particular emphasis include transcriptional control mechanisms, embryonic patterning, cell-cell interactions, growth factors and signal transduction, and regulatory hierarchies in developing plants and animals. Research Areas Include:-Molecular genetics of development, Control of gene expression, Cell interactions and cell-matrix interactions, Mechanisms of differentiation, Growth factors and oncogenes, Regulation of stem cell populations, Evolution of developmental control, and Gametogenesis and fertilization.

Again National Science Foundation has bought its focus on Developmental Biology Branch too for funding and encouraging research. The Welcome Trust too supports the Four Year PhD programme with its funding to encourage the growing research interest in the field.

Developmental biology covers the process by which plants and animals grow and develop, and is identical with ontogeny. Practical outcomes from the study of living thing developmental biology have integrated in vitro fertilization, now widely used in the formation of various animal model for human disease which are useful in research. Developmental biology has also help to make modern stem cell biology which promise a number of important realistic benefits for human health. It also helps to understand the molecular mechanisms that maintain and generate diverse cell types during development.  Knowledge of developmental processes can abet in the understanding of developmental abnormality and other conditions such as cancer and other diseases.
