Simbryo – New @ Himmelfarb

SimbryoSimbryo: An Animated Tour of Human Development is now available via Himmelfarb Library.  Simbryo provides access to a set of animation modules of the embryology system.  Modules include Early Development, Cardiovascular, Genitourinary, Gastrointestinal, Pulmonary, Head and Neck, and Limbs.

Simbryo allows users to explore the spatial and temporal relationships in embryologic development via its visual representations. Simbryo includes a developmental clock to identify the time frame of each animated process. Users can control Simbryo’s high-quality animations by pausing, slowing the speed, moving forward and backward, moving frame by frame, and zooming.  Simbryo also provides pop-up text boxes to narrate the process displayed in the animation.

Simbryo can be access from both on- and off-campus locations.  If you have questions, please contact Laura Abate (leabate@gwu.edu).
