In March 17, 1976 the Board of Trustees approved the reorganized department. Genetics and development was approved by the University Senate as one of the specializations within regulatory biology to convey an emphasis of the department. The Executive Committee of the School of Life Sciences in 1986 decided to dissolve the Department of Genetics and Development and in 1990 approved a Senate recommendation to terminate the department.
