    I want to know exactly how it all comes together...how does a human being develop from a single celled organism into an adult...I can only find bits and pieces of information in my textbooks but most focus on things at the macro level...I guess I want to know more about cellular differentiation and development/early chemical processes of development...

    Learn some basic cell theory:

    Read some introductory article in (molecular) embryology:

    Other useful terms to look up is egg, sperm, stem cell etc.
