In 1964, the Fertilization and Gamete body structure learn education software (FERGAP) used to be confirmed on the Marine organic Laboratories, Woods gap, Massachusetts. Over the process the following 12 years, lower than the directorship of Dr. Charles B. Metz, FERGAP introduced jointly, educated, and encouraged a new release of scholars in reproductive biology from worldwide. As scholars of C. B. Metz and as FERGAP trainees, we want to commit this gathered 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 by means of the numerous influence that C. B. Metz and FERGAP had at the improvement of scholars of reproductive biology. employing either the classical and molecular thoughts of phone biology and immunology to difficulties of gamete biology, Dr. Metz emphasised a comparative and analytical procedure 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 interesting study difficulties in gamete and reproductive biology.
