Epiboly in the Killifish

Synopsis
Epiboly is a crucial aspect of the gastrulation of meroblastic eggs, leading to the establishment of the three germ layers and the formation of the yolk sac. Fundulus heteroclitus has large transparent eggs which allow clear observation of the events of epiboly. The events shown include obtaining eggs and sperm, removal of the chorion, cleavage of the blastodisc, epiboly and the formation of the embryo. The process shown takes about 52 hours.
