How to shape a Developmental Biologist?

Posted by on February 11th, 2021

As astronomers look up to the sky to analyze the infinite universe, developmental biologists look at life unfolding, revealing itself under the light of the microscope. Stars above us, embryos below, we wonder about the possible worlds hindered from our sight. These reflections took place at “The Marine Biology Laboratory Practical Course in Developmental Biology[…]

PhD Opportunity in Regenerative Biology

Posted by on November 2nd, 2020

The study of regenerative biology aims to elucidate the innate ability of organisms to repair tissues or organs after they have been removed or damaged. During vertebrate regeneration, tissue damage causes the immediate release of signals that initiate wound closure and initiate regeneration. This project uses larval zebrafish to study how cells respond to when[…]

How to… Graphical Abstract

Posted by on October 27th, 2020

In my visual communication classes students increasingly want to learn how to make  graphical abstracts. Below I summarized a few key points What are Graphical abstracts? Graphical abstracts are increasingly common to explain biomedical concepts and research results. “Summary slides” have been for long been used in talks or lectures. Today, graphical abstracts are omnipresent[…]

Converting spreadsheets to tidy data – Part 2

Posted by on September 29th, 2020

The superplot was recently proposed as a data visualization strategy that improves the communication of experimental results (Lord et al, 2020). To simplify the visualization of data with a superplot, I created a web tool that is named SuperPlotsOfData (Goedhart, 2020). The superplot tutorial for R , the tutorial for Python and the SuperPlotsOfData web app use the[…]
