A wave of innovations is advancing data-driven computational analysis and machine learning – time for developmental biologists to hop on the surf board! This post, inspired by our recent data-driven work on lateral line morphogenesis, provides a brief primer on key concepts and terms. written by Jonas Hartmann & Darren Gilmour From machine translation to[…]
If this post causes a sense of déjà vu, it might be because you’ve read our recent articles: An Introduction to Writing Review Articles and Getting involved in peer review. For #PeerRevWeek2020, I thought I’d explore the intersection of these two topics. Although there are guides to train potential peer reviewers for reviewing research articles, the[…]
In this episode, sponsored by Thermo Fisher Scientific, we’re taking a look at how genomic technologies are transforming cancer care – now and in the future, and the importance of making sure that these advances are available to all.
In this episode we’re going back to the very beginning, telling the stories of the midwives of the field of developmental genetics, two talented researchers whose work helped to reveal the secrets of life in its very earliest stages: Hilde Mangold and Salome Gluecksohn-Waelsch.
In the latest episode of Genetics Unzipped, Dr Kat Arney takes a look at the progress that’s been made in tackling rare genetic disorders (and the challenges that remain) and we hear from a prenatal genetic counsellor about how new tests are helping people carrying genetic variations make decisions about starting a family.
In the latest episode of Genetics Unzipped, Kat Arney brings you exclusive excerpts from her new book Rebel Cell, exploring where cancer came from, where it’s going, and how we might beat it.
In the latest episode of Genetics Unzipped, Kat Arney looks at the ancient war between our genes and the pathogens that infect us.
We find out if more than DNA passes on to the next generation, whether Darwin was wrong, and how to pimp your genome. Plus, meet the Mickey Mouse Mice.
FocalPlane is a new microscopy community site hosted by Journal of Cell Science (JCS), Development’s sister journal, and like the Node funded by our not-for-profit publisher, The Company of Biologists. Launched yesterday, it encompasses all fields in the biological sciences where they meet microscopy. Here the FocalPlane team introduce the site: From conversations the JCS[…]
We discover how researchers are bringing discoveries about the underlying genetic faults that cause eye diseases all the way through to game-changing gene therapies designed to save sight.
