  • Visible Embryo - The Visible Embryo web site is an evolving educational resource on human development from conception to birth. Designed for medical students, it is a reference for medical professionals as well as the interested public. The site contains information on both normal and abnormal fetal development
  • Embryo Images Online - Embryo Images Normal and Abnormal Mammalian Development is a tutorial that uses scanning electron micrographs (SEMs) as the primary resource to teach mammalian embryology. The 3-D like quality of the micrographs coupled with selected line drawings and minimal text allow relatively easy understanding of the complex morphological changes that occur in utero. Because early human embryos are not readily available and because embryogenesis is very similar across mammalian species, the majority of micrographs that are utilized in this tutorial are of mouse embryos. The remainder are human
  • Chickscope 1.5 - Chickscope is a project to study chicken embryo development using a remotely controlled magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) instrument. It is being developed by educators and researchers from several departments at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in collaboration with Central Illinois teachers
  • NOVA Online/Odyssey of Life - NOVA Online brings you Odyssey of Life, including an interview with photographer Lennart Nilsson, an essay by Joe Levine on embryonic development and evolution, an ongoing How Did We Get Here debate between Kenneth R. Miller and Phillip E. Johnson, video clips of morphing embryos, and Hot Science interactive activities
  • Sea Urchin Embryology - This is a site devoted to the interaction of a leading lab at Stanford University, under Dr. David Epel, with high school science teachers
  • Dynamics of Development - Designed to provide supplementary material for the teaching of developmental biology to undergraduates
