|Cranial Nerve Development||Experiment|
Species: Gallus gallus domesticus
Embryo Name: RC014
Embryo stage: ST31
Staging description: Staged by Reuben according to the Hamburger and Hamilton (1951) staging system. (Notebook entry 10th January 2011). Staging has not been confirmed.
- Beak morphology matches ST30-ST31.
- Legs match ST30-ST31.
- Lines within the eye are present pigmentation matches 31 more closely.
Material label and storage: Stored in vial filled with PFA labeled RC-014 31 and placed in a container labeled 'Reuben's staged embryos' next to the dissection microscope.
Objective: To use as a practice embryo for staging.
Procedure: Staged the embryo by observing the embryo under a dissection microscope and comparing its morphological properties with those described in the Hamburger and Hamilton (1951) paper whilst looking at our own compilation of images organized by stage.
Embryo is approximately ST31.
This embryo may be used in further experiments as approximately a ST31 embryo however confirmation is needed.
