Cell differentiation the search for the organizer

Recreates classic experiments by Hans Spemann which led to discoveries about cell differentiation in an embryo. Explains that amphibian eggs are similar to human eggs and uses time-lapse microphotography and dye to study the progression of cell division in salamander embryos. Shows Walter Vogt's "fate map," which tells what portions of the egg cell will become certain areas of the body.

  • "Recreates classic experiments by Hans Spemann which led to discoveries about cell differentiation in an embryo. Salamander eggs, which are similar to human eggs, are altered or touched with dye and then studied as cell division progresses, using time-lapse microphotography. Shows various areas of the egg and documents changes which take place as cells gradually differentiate to form parts of the body. Describes research by Spemann which identified the group of cells that induces cell differentiation. Shows Walter Vogt's "fate map," which tells what portions of the egg cell will become certain areas of the body."@en
  • "Hans Spemann, in a series of experiments,discovered the organizer, a group of cells that induces differentiation among other cells. This is a meticulous duplication of classic experiments which laid the basis for modern developmental biology."
