Megan Davey- The day in the life of a scientist- Chicken Finger, Dinosaur toes.

I am a developmental biologist, which means understanding how we grow from a single fertilised cell into a walking talking, digesting, thinking human with trillions of cells all doing specialised functions. To study this I use chicken embryos- but what does studying a chicken tell me about humans? And where do dinosaurs come into the story?
