May in preprints

Posted by on June 3rd, 2019

Welcome to our monthly trawl for developmental biology (and related) preprints.  This month evo-devo is particularly well represented (from choanoflagellates to Portuguese men of war), and there’s a slew of single cell sequencing papers, lots on iPSC differentiation and some rooting around in our plant development section. The preprints were hosted on bioRxiv, PeerJ, and arXiv. Let us know if[…]

preLists – charting the waters of the preprint sea

Posted by on May 24th, 2019

We are happy to announce the launch of preLists, a new initiative within preLights where early-career researchers curate lists of preprints for the community. These lists follow two main themes: preprints on a specific topic or preprints which have been presented at scientific meetings. preLighters can also add brief one-liner summaries to each preprint, and[…]

April in preprints

Posted by on May 1st, 2019

Welcome to our monthly trawl for developmental biology (and related) preprints.  This month was notable for a preponderance of plant development preprints, many molecular maps (supported by single cell sequencing), a hearty helping of human development and a multiplicity of (Drosophila) melanogaster mechanics. The preprints were hosted on bioRxiv, PeerJ, and arXiv. Let us know if we missed anything, and[…]

March in preprints

Posted by on April 1st, 2019

Welcome to our monthly trawl for developmental biology (and related) preprints.  This month we found three hydra preprints, lots of developmental mechanics, a typically hearty serving of single cell transcriptomic analyses and a survey of the life of PIs. The preprints were hosted on bioRxiv, PeerJ, and arXiv. Let us know if we missed anything, and use these links[…]

February in preprints

Posted by on March 4th, 2019

Welcome to our monthly trawl for developmental biology (and related) preprints.  February was notable for the amount of neural development, from retina to cortex and fly to fish. We also found butterfly wings, human segmentation, a plenitude of of plants and sequenced genomes for komodo dragons, parasitic wasps, copepods and one celebrity cat. The preprints[…]

January in preprints

Posted by on February 1st, 2019

Welcome to our monthly trawl for developmental biology (and related) preprints.  January was notable for the number of preprints on Xenopus development, plus a trio on Piezo channels, two on ctenophores, and a preprint on preprints that has also been preLighted (very meta). The preprints were hosted on bioRxiv, PeerJ, and arXiv. Let us know if we missed anything, and use[…]

December in preprints

Posted by on January 3rd, 2019

Welcome to our monthly trawl for developmental biology (and related) preprints.  December’s haul includes a succession of preprints on Drosophila patterning (embryos, wings, brains and intestines), single cell investigations into the neural crest, hair cells, spinal cord and retina, a comparison of  primate brain organoids, and plant development covered from root to shoot. The preprints[…]

November in preprints

Posted by on December 4th, 2018

Welcome to our monthly trawl for developmental biology (and related) preprints.  This month’s haul includes a potful of plant development, new ways to mend broken hearts, an Alexa in the lab, and three preprints from Development’s recently appointed Editor Cassandra Extavour. The preprints were hosted on bioRxiv, PeerJ, and arXiv. Let us know if we missed anything, and use[…]

October in preprints

Posted by on November 1st, 2018

Welcome to our monthly trawl for developmental biology (and related) preprints.  This month we decided to reinstate our Plant Development section after a Twitter chat, and as it happened October had a glut of preprints covering all aspects of plant development. You’ll also find lots of regeneration (kidneys, colons, eyes, axons and whole colonial tunicates),[…]

September in preprints

Posted by on October 3rd, 2018

Welcome to our monthly trawl for developmental biology (and related) preprints.  Another month, another net full of exciting science. Look out for WNT vampires, regenerating lampreys, polarising ctenophores, plus investigations into niche architecture, tissue mechanics and the dynamics of developmental signalling. The preprints were hosted on bioRxiv, PeerJ, and arXiv. Let us know if we missed anything, and use[…]
