An embryo is a new organism within the early stage of development. In sexually reproducing organisms for example in humans, the embryo is the resultant single cell post fertilisation of a female egg cell by the male sperm cell. An organism in its initial stage of development ready to grow and differentiate, in humans from approximately the first week post fertilisation to the end of eighth week. The unborn baby beyond eight weeks is referred to as a fetus. Embryos In Detail Immediately when human fertilisation takes place, the embryo develops from a zygote the single cell resulting from the fertilization of the female egg cell by the male sperm cell. The zygote possesses half the DNA of each of its two parents. Cellular division begins and progresses at a fast rate. At just about four weeks the cell mass becomes a recognizable embryo, which measures around 7 to 10 millimetre long with rudimentary organs, normally at this stage of the embryo extremities such as the eyes and ears are seen.
