In 1964, the Fertilization and Gamete body structure examine education software (FERGAP) was once validated on the Marine organic Laboratories, Woods gap, Massachusetts. Over the process the subsequent 12 years, below the directorship of Dr. Charles B. Metz, FERGAP introduced jointly, knowledgeable, and encouraged a iteration of scholars in reproductive biology from worldwide. As scholars of C. B. Metz and as FERGAP trainees, we want to devote this accumulated paintings on comparative mammalian fertilization to our instructor and mentor, Dr. Charles B. Metz. Like a few authors contributing to this quantity, we've been struck through the numerous effect that C. B. Metz and FERGAP had at the improvement of scholars of reproductive biology. using either the classical and molecular innovations of mobilephone biology and immunology to difficulties of gamete biology, Dr. Metz emphasised a comparative and analytical strategy that was once mirrored in his personal study on fertilization in Paramecia, sea urchins, frogs, and mammals. it's was hoping that this quantity will serve to stimulate scholars to find the myriad of attention-grabbing examine difficulties in gamete and reproductive biology.
