Dear students, postdocs and mentors, We write to share our enthusiasm about the MBL Embryology course and to encourage graduate students and postdoctoral fellows to apply for the 2011 summer course “Embryology: Concepts and Techniques in Modern Developmental Biology” at the Marine Biological Laboratory from June 5 – July 17, 2011.  The application deadline has[…]

JSDB meeting

Posted by on February 8th, 2011

There’s still time to register for this years JSDB meeting. The deadline for abstract submission has been extended until February 10th. JSDB meetings have been held almost entirely in English in recent years and not only offer an exciting scientific program, but also a chance to discover Japan.  This year the conference will be held[…]

Meeting report from the 2010 Cold Spring Harbor Asia Conference “Molecular Switches and Genome Function in Stem Cells and Development”

Posted by on February 3rd, 2011

In 2010 Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories building upon the success of its educational programs established an equivalent program in Asia and Pacific Rim centered in Suzhou, China – Cold Spring Harbor Conferences Asia (CSHCA). This development echoes the spectacular advances in biological research throughout the region (especially in China) over the past 30 years. The[…]

EMBO Workshop. Frontiers in Sensory Development, Barcelona, Spain

Posted by on February 2nd, 2011

Barcelona is the setting for the EMBO Workshop, Frontiers in Sensory Development from 3rd-6th May, 2011. The meeting will focus on different aspects of sensory development, function and evolution in both vertebrate and invertebrate systems. We hope this workshop will allow a better understanding of common themes in sensory function and will encourage colleagues working[…]

The (re)birth of the DSDB

Posted by on February 1st, 2011

As the world of research into developmental biology becomes larger, and the arrival of online communities such as The Node allows us to bring that world a little closer to hand, the importance of using scientific communities to share expertise and experience only grows.   Therefore, here in the Netherlands we are pleased to announce that[…]

How to stay in contact with the French Community of Developmental Biologists?

Posted by on February 1st, 2011

I remember when I was a post doc abroad. Science was great, life in a foreign country was very nice, but there was one huge drawback for a French in exile: how to stay in contact with research in France (or any country…), especially when you are a newcomer in the developmental biology field? One[…]

Conference Announcement: Chick meeting

Citing Data

Posted by on January 17th, 2011

I just got back from attending two meetings about academia and the internet – one in person and the second, in true internet style, virtually. Both meetings at one point or another discussed the growing trend toward archiving and citing data itself (on top of citing the papers written based on analysis of the data).[…]

Royal Society Stem Cell Meeting talks online

Posted by on January 11th, 2011

The Royal Society has uploaded audio files of almost all the talks of their Discussion Meeting last October: “2010: What Next for Stem Cell Biology?”. Unfortunately there are no slides to look at (as far as I can tell) so some of the more technical talks may be hard to follow, but if you’re already[…]
