Transparent peer review at Development

Posted by on August 1st, 2019

Publishing peer review reports In the interests of promoting transparency around the editorial process, Development will now be publishing a ‘Peer review history’ file alongside published papers, where the author has opted-in to such a file being published. All research papers submitted on or after 1 August 2019 are eligible. The file can be found on the[…]

Postdoctoral fellow in kidney organogenesis, New York City

Posted by on August 1st, 2019

The Kidney Regenerative Medicine Laboratory at the Rogosin Institute is searching for a talented and highly motivated individual interested in understanding how we can apply our understanding of kidney developmental biology to generating new tissue from stem- and primary cells. The goal of the lab is to generate kidney tissue that faithfully reproduces adult kidney[…]

Development at the single cell level

Posted by on July 17th, 2019

Development recently published a bumper Special Issue devoted to single cell approaches to developmental biology. A multitude of model systems featured – from Dicty to Drosophila to mouse to zebrafish – and the issue’s Reviews, Spotlight and Hypothesis gave an overview of the field’s current challenges and opportunities.     The cover was chosen by[…]

Collaboration: All the things we cannot see (alone).

Posted by on June 3rd, 2019

By Miriam Rosenberg and Suparna Ray Most of what we know about axial patterning in insects comes from decades of careful, beautiful work done in flies. Thanks to the genetic screens of Christiane Nüsslein-Volhard and Eric Wieschaus in the late 1970’s, we learned that distinct classes of genes, many of them transcription factors, act in[…]

A Madrid-Washington synergy for mouse embryo live-imaging

Posted by on April 23rd, 2019

One of the things I learned during my stay in another lab is that you can’t succeed completely by yourself. You can try, sure, but a relevant unanswered question in biology is a hard nut to crack. It usually takes a multidisciplinary approach and great ideas coming from more than one brain. Collaborations are key[…]

Development at the single cell level – cover competition

Posted by on April 11th, 2019

This summer, Development will be publishing a special issue showcasing the best research in stem cell and developmental biology, building on the rapidly evolving tools of single cell analysis. Some papers in the issue have already been published as part of our continuous publication system (see the latest articles here), while other research articles and front[…]

Development Special Issue: Chromatin and Epigenetics

Posted by on March 14th, 2019

Development invites you to submit your latest research for our upcoming special issue: Chromatin and Epigenetics. This issue will be coordinated by several of our Academic Editors who are experts in this field: Benoit Bruneau, Haruhiko Koseki, Susan Strome and Maria Elena Torres-Padilla. Recent years have seen huge advances in our understanding of how DNA and histone modifications, chromatin[…]

Postdoc in computational single-cell biology in planarians

Posted by on January 15th, 2019

The Solana lab is looking for a postdoctoral computational researcher to work on single-cell transcriptomic and genomics of planarian stem cell differentiation. Our lab just started in Oxford Brookes University. We are currently three lab members but we will expand soon. We recently obtained funding from the MRC to expand our single-cell analysis of planarian[…]

The people behind the papers evolves into print

Posted by on November 22nd, 2018

For the last two years, our interview series ‘The people behind the papers‘ has showcased the faces of developmental biology, and we’re excited to announce that the series will now also be printed in Development. The first ‘paper’ interview is with Chaitanya Dingare and Virginie Lecaudey, first and last authors of a paper reporting a surprising[…]

From stem cells to human development: Meeting report

Posted by on November 15th, 2018

In  September, Development held the third of its highly successful series of meetings focusing on human developmental biology. Here at the Node we ran a competition to find a meeting reporter who would share their experiences of the meeting in exchange for free registration. Competition winner Antonio Barral Gil, a PhD student in Miguel Manzanares’ Lab at[…]
