January in preprints

Posted by , on 2 February 2018

Our latest monthly trawl for developmental biology (and other cool) preprints. Let us know if we missed anything.


Here at the Company of Biologists we are very excited about our soon to launch biology preprints highlighting service, preLights. Before the site goes live, you can sign up for email updates here and follow preLights on Twitter here.

This month was notable for its plant content (see the many beautiful images below), plus a bumper ‘Research practice’ section with discussion of gender, ethics, education, and the future of US science.

The preprints were hosted on bioRxivPeerJ, and arXiv. Use these links to get to the section you want:
