September in preprints

Posted by , on 5 October 2016

Our monthly trawl for preprints from developmental biology and related research. Previous posts can be found here


 

Preprints roll on, and this month’s selection is a reminder of how developmental biology is based on a variety of model organisms. We’ve got two investigations into zebrafish mesoderm from Deborah Yelon’s lab, quite a bit of cell mechanics (in zebrafish, fly and worm), updates on the underlying cell biology of  cell division in c. elegans, a transcriptome for the spiny mouse, and much more besides.

As in the last months, the preprints predominantly came from bioRxiv, but we also found a couple from PeerJ.  If we missed anything out, let us know. Happy preprinting!
