  Embryology - LoveToKnow 1911
In its strict sense, therefore, embryology is the study of the intrauterine young or embryo, and can only be pursued in those animals in which the offspring are retained in the uterus of the mother until they have acquired, or nearly acquired, the form of the parent.
The domain of embryology ceases in the case of viviparous animals at birth, in the case of oviparous animals at hatching; it ceases as soon as the young form acquires the power of existing when separated from the parent, or when removed from the protection of the egg membranes.
The science of embryology, then, is the science of individual development, and includes within its purview all those changes of form and structure, whether embryonic, larval or post-larval, which characterize the life of the individual.

 Embryology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Embryology literally means the study of embryos, but this definition is restrictive.
Since developmental processes continue beyond these events, the scope of embryology is customarily broadened to encompass the entire life history of an organism.
Embryology may, in this wider context, consider the mechanisms of both asexual reproduction and regeneration.

 Catholic Culture : Document Library : Corruption of the Science of Human Embryology, The
The media have especially ignored Human Embryology in their many articles on the core issues.  The media have preferentially published a distortion of this science while totally ignoring the many references available for factual information.  The impact of this on public policy has been staggering.
The continuum of human life was understood in generic terms even by the ancients.  This is why it is dogma in Human Embryology that the fetus is a second patient, and why that dogma is an imperative in clinical medicine.
By claiming that Human Embryology is really developmental biology, he in effect wipes out a 2,5000-year-old history of Human Embryology.  And the claim that Human Embryology is devoid of molecular biology reveals that Silver has never read a textbook of Human Embryology — all of which I stated in my reply to him.

 Embryology and Evolution
An example of the many exceptions to the hypothesis of recapitulation is that in an evolution scheme the spinal cord is present before the brain, but in embryology the brain develops first.
Scientists during the time of Haeckel and today have recognized that researchers need to be free to construct their hypotheses and theories on the basis of the empirical evidence.
“This affair belongs to embryology, and therefore you, who are not embryologists, are incompetent to form a judgment in the matter.” Even if their opponent happened to be an embryologist, they would still discredit him if he retained the slightest vestige of belief in God, freewill or the human soul.

This is why it is dogma in Human Embryology that the fetus is a second patient, and why that dogma is an imperative in clinical medicine.
In their textbook, The Developing Human: Clinically Oriented Embryology, 5th edition, Moore and Persaud did use the terms "preembryo" and "preembryonic." However, upon requests by yours truly, they appropriately removed the terms in their 6th printing of the 5th edition, and they do not appear in their 6th edition (1998).
I sent a letter to Chairman Kass critical of the revision of the terminology of Human Embryology and the fact that no human embryologist was appointed to the Council nor invited to testify (I had previously sent letters to President Bush and to Professor Kass requesting that a human embryologist be appointed).

The detailed linguistic and scientific explanations I have given in The Bible, The Qur'an and Science are sufficient for the person who does not speak Arabic nor know much about embryology to be able to understand the meaning of such verses in the light of modern science in more depth.
It is especially in the field of embryology that a comparison between the beliefs present at the time of the Qur'an's revelation and modern scientific data, leaves us amazed at the degree of agreement between the Qur'an's statements and modern scientific knowledge.
The most fundamental stage in the history of embryology came in 1651 with Harvey's statement that "all life initially comes from an egg".

The Act covers fertility treatment involving the use of donated eggs or sperm (collectively known as 'gametes') or embryos created outside the body ('in vitro fertilisation') and also covers storage and research.

Our goals are to help you understand the basic biological principles of embryology and how they are relevant to making informed choices about these issues, how human development is similar to the development of other vertebrates and how abnormalities in developmental processes can lead to congenital defects.
The laboratory and lecture portions of BIOS 325 present complementary views of embryology in a different format.
In the laboratory you will study sections of preserved embryos of the frog, bird and pig, observe living embryos (sea urchins and amphibians) and present a poster to the class on a embryology topic that you choose.

 Scientific errors and the myth of embryology in the Koran
As I mentioned at the beginning of this study, it has been said that the idea of the embryo developing through stages is a modern one, and that the Qur'an is prophesying modern embryology by depicting differing stages.
It is equally clear, that ‘alaqa in the Qur'an means clot and that the Quraish who heard Muhammad speaking understood him to be referring to the menstrual blood as the female contribution to the developing baby.
Therefore we can conclude that during all these years, the Quranic verses on embryology saying that "man is created from a drop of sperm which becomes a clot" were in perfect accord with the "science" of the 1st century of the Hejira, of the time of the Qur'an.

In a significant advance for regenerative medicine, researchers at Rice University have discovered a new way to culture adult stem cells from bone marrow such that the cells themselves produce a growth matrix that is rich in important biochemical growth factors.
According to a study to be published in the American Journal of Physiology-Heart and Circulation Physiology, a typical course of hyperbaric oxygen treatments increases by eight-fold the number of stem cells circulating in a patient's body.
The generation of embryonic stem cell lines using an alternative approach that does not interfere with the developmental potential of embryos is possible.
