Because of the use of the frog model system, we now have a much more detailed understanding of vertebrate development, cellular functions and neurological signaling than we otherwise would.
I dont know how to rephase this sentence without using ' otherwise '. Can anyone explain to me the use of otherwise by giving more examples?
...than we would have without the frog model system
Thanks. Can u pls give me some examples using 'otherwise'?

...any changes to this agreement may only be made in a written form; otherwise any such changes shall be deemed null and void...
In the above examples the meaning of 'otherwise' is 'under any circumstances different than the conditions specified'.
Also in less formal language 'otherwise' can be perfectly in place:
'I still think he is an honest man, even though you may think otherwise.'
('...you may think he isn't an honest man.')
Generally speaking, 'otherwise' means 'differently', 'diversely'.
Hope the above helps.
