Emergence of Terminally Differentiated Cells in each cell type class, relative to the 400 minutes of embryogenesis. be 200 to 300 minute period is sampled at 5-minute intervals, while the 300 to 400 minute period is sampled at 30-minute intervals. Bottom of figure is labeled with the corresponding developmental stages and images of the embryo during select times.
