Show and tell

Show and tell

To provide more visual content on the Node, we are starting a new series called ‘Show and tell’. The aim of these short posts is to act as a hook for people to find out more about a paper, a technique or a location that is of interest to the developmental and stem cell biology community.

Do you have an incredible image or video from one of your recent papers? Are you optimising a technique and want to showcase a piece of equipment you are using? Or perhaps your research involves going to a field site to collect samples? Why not write a ‘Show and tell’ post yourself by following the directions in this post!
