*Voting is closed and winners have been announced!*   Our call for images to fill our 2019-20 calendar was met with an amazing response – 62 entries showcasing the diverse beauty of developmental biology. Now it’s time for you vote for the 12 that will make it into print. Because we want a range of[…]

HFSP postdoctoral position in quantitative high-content imaging of [synthetic] embryos

Posted by on May 7th, 2019

Our laboratory of synthetic development at IMBA (Vienna) is looking for a postdoctoral colleague to decode the self-organising behaviours of early embryos. This position is part of a HFSP with Shantanu Singh (Broad Institute) and Kyogo Kawaguchi (Riken Institute), and requires regular and frequent exchanges with these labs.   Requirements. We are looking for a[…]

Image competition: a new developmental biology calendar

Posted by on April 25th, 2019

Have you got a beautiful image of a developing organism you’d like to share with the world? Or a striking computer generated visualisation, or even something you’ve drawn or painted or stitched or crafted? We’re planning a Node calendar for the academic year 2019-20, and want to fill it with your images.     Entering is[…]

Development at the single cell level – cover competition

Posted by on April 11th, 2019

This summer, Development will be publishing a special issue showcasing the best research in stem cell and developmental biology, building on the rapidly evolving tools of single cell analysis. Some papers in the issue have already been published as part of our continuous publication system (see the latest articles here), while other research articles and front[…]

The 12 GIFs of Christmas

Posted by on December 21st, 2018

Over on Twitter we’ve been having fun with our third instalment of the 12 GIFs of Christmas. For those not on Twitter, here are the GIFs – they represent some of the most cutting edge and inventive developmental biology of 2018, and also showcase the beauty of timelapse microscopy.   Transcription overlaid onto the rapid[…]

Blastoid: the backstory of the formation of blastocyst-like structure solely from stem cells.

Posted by on June 27th, 2018

In our recently published paper1, we showed that mouse stem cells self-organize into blastocyst-like structures, that we termed blastoids. Because blastoids can be generated in large numbers, can be finely manipulated, and implant in utero, they are a powerful tool to investigate the principles of pre- and post-implantation development. Here is the backstory of our[…]

New embryo phenotype data from the DMDD programme

Posted by on June 15th, 2018

Following our latest data release, the DMDD website (dmdd.org.uk) now contains detailed phenotype data for nearly 700 embryos from 82 different knockout mouse lines. Highlights include the identification of limb defects and cysts in Col4a2 knockouts and replication of the major features of Meckel syndrome in B9d2 knockouts. We have begun to add immunohistochemistry image[…]

Vote for a Development cover – we have a winner!

Posted by on June 6th, 2018

Two weeks ago we set up our latest competition to vote for an image to adorn the cover of a future Development issue. The images were taken by students of the International Course on Developmental Biology, an EMBO Practical Course held at the Marine Biology Station of Quintay in Chile. Voting has just closed, and with precisely[…]
