June in preprints

Posted by , on 6 July 2016

In this new feature, we conduct a trawl for preprints to find the latest developmental biology and related research from the previous month.

Scientists are increasingly using preprints as a way of releasing research to the community without having to wait for the peer review process, and we want to promote this content here. Several sites host biology preprints, most notably bioRxiv, but also arXiv, f1000 Research, and PeerJ Preprints (for more info on preprints, ASAPbio has a useful FAQ page).

This month we found content from bioRxiv, arXiv, F1000 Research and PeerJ spanning developmental biology research, including investigations into cell fate in preimplantation mouse embryos and worm larvae,  a new technique for bi-allelic gene knockouts, and a method for making midbrain-specific organoids.
