Conception refers to the fertilization of an oocyte by a sperm cell to produce a new diploid cell that contains the genetic information of both haploid cells. As soon as the ovum is fertilized, the process of cell division begins giving rise to the first group of daughter cells—the first step toward embryonic development. For this process to continue, the now blastocyst must be implanted into the endometrium.
In this course, the student will be given an overview of the processes associated with fertilization, embryonic implantation, and development. Along the way, diseases arising from developmental processes going awry will be discussed.
For optimal comprehension, the student will be required to have preliminary knowledge of molecular and cellular biology and biochemistry, with an emphasis on cell division and gene expression.
I appreciate how both processes were explained and the difference between the two because I always seem to confuse them.
Very clear explanation, I understood everything quite well. Key concepts.
This lecture has helped me a lot thank you so much!!
this app is amazing thank you doctor, for helping me
