Founded in 1914, the Department of Embryology at the Carnegie Institution of Washington has made a great contribution to the biological understanding of embryos and their development. Although originally much of the research was carried out through experimental embryology, by the second half of the twentieth century, tissue and cell cultures were providing histological information about development, and biochemistry and molecular genetics dominated research. This is the final volume in a series of five histories of the Carnegie Institution of Washington.
