Developmental biology is the study of the process by which organisms grow and develop.
Modern developmental biology studies the genetic control of cell growth, differentiation and "morphogenesis," which is the process that gives rise to tissues, organs and anatomy.
Embryology is a subfield, the study of organisms between the one-cell stage (generally, the zygote) and the end of the embryonic stage.
Embryology and developmental biology today deal with the various steps necessary for the correct and complete formation of the body of a living organism.
