    The notochord is the defining structure of the chordates, and has essential roles in vertebrate development. It is a flexible, rod-shaped structure that is in the embryonic stage of all chordates. It gives the skeletal support and is found in between the digestive tube and nerve cord. In some animal chordates lifetimes it is the main axial support in the body. The dorsal hollow nerve cord is the only feature unique to all chordates. It is located at the top of the animal, above the notochord.…
