F A S C I N A T I N G Development involves mechanisms at the molecular, cellular and tissue levels to arrive at the complex anatomical and physiological structure of an organism. The study of development can shed light into the processes of many diseases that afflict people worldwide.

A little science goes a long way in the movies.  

Consider some of the monsters that resulted from SCIENCE EXPERIMENTS gone awry:

1. “Island of Lost Souls” (1932): A scientist conducts genetic experiments on a remote island. http://www.criterion.com/films/27861-island-of-lost-souls

2. “The Mutations” (1974): a geneticist combines the DNA of humans and plants. http://horrorpedia.com/

3.  ”The Fly” (1986, adapted from the 1958 film): a physicist experiments with teleportation, accidentally transporting himself and a fly in the same telepod. http://www.qagoma.qld.gov.au/

5. “Deep Blue Sea” (1999):  Sharks are genetically manipulated in hopes of finding a cure for Alzheimer’s, resulting in ‘super-smart’ sharks.  http://www.listal.com/list/30-greatest-modern-monster-movies

6.  ”Frankenfish” (2004): Genetically engineered Chinese Snakehead fish turn to killing humans.  http://www.screenjunkies.com/

7.  ”Splice” (2009):  Genetic engineers combine the DNA of different animals and humans in an effort to aid in medical sciences.  http://fandangogroovers.wordpress.com/2010/07/26/

8.  ”Rise of the Planet of the Apes” (2011): a scientist testing a drug to cure Alzheimer’s, gives the drug to chimpanzees, increasing their intelligence and more.  http://blockbusterwallpapers.com/
