The Drosophila fly brings to light the role of morphogens in limb growth

Posted by on July 5th, 2017

• Scientists at IRB Barcelona clarify the function of the genes that drive wing development in the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster. • Published in the journal eLife, this study unveils that the Dpp morphogen is necessary for wing growth but that its gradient does not govern this process. • Understanding the development of limbs in[…]

Going format-free

Posted by on May 30th, 2017

This Editorial originally appeared in Development, Volume 144, Issue 11   Katherine Brown, Olivier Pourquié   As some readers will already be aware, we have recently introduced a new ‘format-free’ submission policy. We’ve been delighted by the early feedback on this – from what we’re hearing, this has been a popular move and will help make[…]

Development introduces format-free submission

Posted by on April 20th, 2017

At Development, we are committed to making submission as easy as possible for our authors. We realise that submitting a paper to any journal can be a lengthy process: authors are asked to comply with detailed journal-specific guidelines without knowing whether the paper will be accepted or even peer-reviewed. We are therefore delighted to announce[…]

A New Way To Look At Human Development

Posted by on March 29th, 2017

  Throughout history, the desire of scientists to understand physiology and disease by thoroughly studying anatomical features, has always faced an intractable limitation: they cannot simply see through the tissue! Dissection has therefore been the modus operandi of anatomists: from Galen’s pioneering studies, to modern day biologists who routinely section tissues to label structures for[…]

Meet Our Scientists VIDEO: Marco Milán: “To study how cells communicate with each other, perhaps the best model organism is the fruit fly”

Posted by on February 15th, 2017

The “Meet Our Scientists” video entitled “Our relative the fly” presents the research performed by Marco Millán on the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying the regulation of tissue growth during normal development, tissue homeostasis, and tumorigenesis.     Marco Milán, ICREA research professor, leads the Development and Growth Control Laboratory at IRB Barcelona. In the[…]

In Development this week (Vol. 144, Issue 2)

Posted by on January 17th, 2017

Here are the highlights from the current issue of Development:   ECM: bridging the gap between germ layers The extracellular matrix (ECM) plays crucial roles during morphogenesis but how it is assembled and patterned in vivo is poorly understood. Here, Yuki Sato, Rusty Lansford and colleagues investigate this by examining the distribution of the ECM[…]

Here are the highlights from the current issue of Development:   A postnatal model for Zika virus infection Zika virus (ZIKV) infection results in embryonic microcephaly and has been declared a global health emergency by the World Health Organization. Disruption of the neural progenitor cells is considered to be the major cause of microcephaly; however,[…]
