In the Embryology Simulation, you will perform experiments with the chicken and mouse model organisms. Will you be able to figure out why the arms of Liebenberg patients look like legs?

About This Simulation

In the Embryology simulation, you will perform experiments with the chicken and mouse model organisms. You will observe embryos in different developmental stages and use molecular biology techniques to study the limb development of vertebrates. Your goal is to identify the causes of the mysterious Liebenberg syndrome. Will you be able to figure out why the arms of Liebenberg patients look like legs?
