Developmental Biology in Greece

Cover legend

Ἐμβρυολογία/Embryology originated with Aristotle, the ‘Father of Natural History’. His treatise Περίζωνγενέσεως/On the Generation of Animals is the first ‘great compendium of embryology’ ever written, and is ‘by far the most important in the history of embryology’. The introduction of molecular techniques being applied to the classical problems of embryonic development transformed classical embryology to a field of codes and regulatory circuits. Developmental Biology has flourished and is now a vibrant interdisciplinary field in present day Greece.
