December in preprints

Posted by on January 4th, 2018

Our latest monthly trawl for developmental biology (and other cool) preprints. Let us know if we missed anything.   In their end of year round up, Science magazine picked ‘Biology preprints take off’ as a runner up 2018 Breakthrough of the Year, and ran a quote from Ron Vale –   “It’s a major cultural[…]

November in preprints

Our latest monthly trawl for developmental biology (and other cool) preprints. Let us know if we missed anything.   This month in preprint news – here at The Company of Biologists, set just outside Cambridge in the UK, we’re hiring a new ‘Preprints Community Manager’. You can find out more here. It’s a great opportunity to get in[…]

October in preprints

Posted by on November 2nd, 2017

Our latest monthly trawl for developmental biology (and other cool) preprints. Let us know if we missed anything.   October was a monster month for preprinting (a burst of post-summer productivity?), notable for the number of preprints covering plant development, disease modelling, modelling modelling, neurodevelopment, and organisms ranging from polychaete worms to hemipterans, Arctic charr[…]

September in preprints

Posted by on October 3rd, 2017

Our latest monthly trawl for developmental biology (and other cool) preprints. See last year’s introductory post for background, and let us know if we missed anything.   This month features butterfly eyespots, brain development in vivo and in silico, lots on cell commitment in embryos and dishes, a diverse selection of modelling preprints, and, right at the end in our ‘Why[…]

August in preprints

Posted by on September 4th, 2017

Our latest monthly trawl for developmental biology (and other cool) preprints. See last year’s introductory post for background, and let us know if we missed anything It all went very meta this month with Matthew Cobb’s PeerJ preprint about a forgotten experiment in preprints from the 1960s. The story was highlighted in Science, a journal, Cobb explains, whose editor disparaged the[…]

Our latest monthly trawl for developmental biology (and other cool) preprints. See June’s introductory post for background, and let us know if we missed anything March was (yet) another bumper month for life sciences preprints. A glance at some of the names of last authors – Daniel St. Johnston, Denise Montell, Dennis Duboule, Roberto Mayor, Fiona Watt[…]
