Giving scientific ideas a voice (and a video)

Posted by on May 20th, 2014

Explaining new scientific concepts can be a daunting task for anyone involved in outreach. We are constantly trying to come up with ways to explain, show and describe theories and ideas step by step. I’ve recently stumbled across a new app (albeit only available on ipad) called Adobe Voice that could help out scientific communication. […]

Mapping the Embryo for Developmental Biologists & Stem Cell Researchers; LifeMap Discovery® – a Roadmap of Mammalian Cell Ontology

Posted by on March 30th, 2014

Understanding how cells differentiate during embryonic development is invaluable for the in vitro derivation of functional cells from stem cells. However, mapping the human embryo, including characterization of all the cell types that make up the developing and mature human body, and of all embryonic progenitor cell types that appear in intermediate developmental stages, is […]
