Since its launch in 2010, the Node has functioned as a community resource for developmental biologists. When I started my 3 month internship in September (see my introductory post here), we decided to utilise my experience as an active researcher to redesign and update the Node’s resources page. This included transferring the resources from the British Society for Developmental Biology’s homepage, which had previously been curated over several years by Andreas Prokop and which gave me wonderful insight into the wide range of resources out there.
The new resources page is designed to provide many different links to explore. You can learn more about becoming involved in advocacy and outreach, or find links on new teaching resources for schools and databases for a wide range of species.
This new list is by no means comprehensive and we need your thoughts on how it can be improved, whether by content or user experience!
I still have two weeks left of this internship before returning to my PhD in Tom Pratt’s lab, and during this time I aim to continue working on the resources section. However this is a community resource and to improve it further I need the input of the community. Please get in touch to let us know what is useful to you, what needs to be added/updated and any way that the resources section can be improved. I hope you enjoy using it and it is useful to the developmental biology community in your future endeavours.
