Slides are provided for a class covering signaling cascades that mediate early embryogenesis and are part of the course �Cell Signaling Systems: A Course for Graduate Students�. The lecture focuses on the mechanisms underlying germ layer formation, patterning, and suppression in the vertebrate embryo, with particular emphasis on the regulation of mesodermal development in the model organism Xenopus laevis.
