So, I'm in an embryology class that requires me to write a paper on embryological malformations, and since I'm interested in dentistry, I thought of cleft lip and palate. Does anyone have any good links to websites or scholarly articles concerning this topic? I did a thread search on the site but came up with nothing. Thanks for your help.

Have you searched the medical journals? You can usually find them on your school library website.

Timothy Cox and Michael Cunningham work on craniofacial malformations at UWashington. Rulang Jiang uses mice to study cleft lip and palate (he's currently at Rochester). If you go into pubmed and type in 'cleft lip palate' it'll come up with some papers for you. Wikipedia is also a good intial source to get a general overview of stuff. Also try google scholar.

Also, Richard Schenider at UCSF and Jill Helms at Stanford work on craniofacial stuff too but use the chick model.

Hope this helps.
