Gastrulation and Germ Layer Formation

Gastrulation, occurring during the second week after fertilization, involved the formation of the three fundamental germ layers of the embryo – the ectoderm, the mesoderm, and the endoderm. During this time, important signal-calling phenomena – called embryonic inductions – set the molecular stage for the initiation of organ formation. In addition, the fundamental asymmetry of the body is set in place.
