Posted by the Node, on 30 August 2022
Are you just starting out in your career as a developmental biologist (or feeling nostalgic for those times)? The vast amount of literature can feel a bit daunting when you are tackling a new topic. To help you navigate the field, and to focus on some of the lesser known classics, we asked prominent researchers to recommend their hidden gems from history. Their selection includes Rosa Beddington’s chimeras, Morgan’s planarian experiments and principles of morphogenesis from Gustafson and Wolpert. Let us know if you come across any forgotten classics that we should include in our series.
