The blastocyst phase of a developing embryo takes place at day 5-6 after fertilization. At this phase, the embryo has 70-100 cells and is much more complex than its previous forms. Traditionally in in vitro fertilization, the embryo is transferred to the uterus on day 2-3 after fertilization. One reason for this is the inability, until recently, to create a culture environment that could house the embryo and facilitate its growth during the next 3 days to reach the blastocyst phase.

Superficial cleavage in a Drosophila embryo. The early divisions occur centrally. The numbers refer to the cell cycle. At the tenth cell cycle (512-nucleus stage 2 hours after fertilization), the pole cells form in the posterior, and the nuclei and their cytoplasmic islands (“energids”) migrate to the periphery of the cell. This creates the syncytial blastoderm. After cycle 13, the oocyte membranes ingress between the nuclei to form the cellular blastoderm. (Laser confocal images of stained…
