From our sister journals- August 2015

Posted by on August 24th, 2015

Here is some developmental biology related content from other journals published by The Company of Biologists.         Deducing the stage of origin of Wilms tumours from a developmental series of Wt1 mutants Wilms’ tumours, paediatric kidney cancers, are the archetypal example of tumours caused through the disruption of normal development. In this[…]

An interview with Phil Ingham

Posted by on June 11th, 2014

This interview first appeared in Development. Philip Ingham is a geneticist and developmental biologist, based at the Imperial College, London – Nanyang Technological University, Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine in Singapore. From identifying the Drosophila trithorax mutant to the discovery of the vertebrate hedgehog genes, from perfecting in situ techniques in the fly to helping make zebrafish a successful model[…]

PhD-student Position in Thalamus Development / Tissue Engineering in Zebrafish

Posted by on September 21st, 2011

We are looking for a highly motivated PhD student to study development and regeneration of the thalamus in zebrafish. Stroke is a prevalent and devastating disorder, and no treatment is currently available to restore lost neuronal function after stroke. In 10% of all stroke patients, a remote damage of the thalamus has been documented. We[…]

Here are the highlights from the current issue of Development: How transcriptional silencing goes into reverse The Polycomb group (PcG) machinery silences terminal differentiation genes in stem cell lineages. Reversal of this epigenetic transcriptional silencing is implicated in the selective activation of these genes during differentiation, but little is known about the mechanism of this[…]

In Development this week (Vol. 137, Issue 22)

Research highlights from the current issue of Development: Novel Hh targets fly in Hedgehog (Hh), a secreted morphogen, acts in a paracrine fashion to regulate tissue patterning during embryogenesis. Its tissue-specific effects are mediated by the transcription factor Cubitus interruptus (Ci), but how it exerts such effects is unclear. On p. 3887, Thomas Kornberg and[…]
