November in preprints

Posted by on December 2nd, 2019

Welcome to our monthly trawl for developmental biology (and related) preprints.  This month we found preprints detailing extensive mouse and fly knockout resources, exploring bacterial influences on development, and investigating mechanics in vivo and in silico. They were hosted on bioRxiv and arXiv. Let us know if we missed anything. Use these links to get to the section you[…]

EDBC 2019: preprints workshop

Posted by on November 21st, 2019

For the first time in 20 years, researchers from across the continent gathered for the European Developmental Biology Congress in Alicante, Spain (October 23-26 2019). Fortunately, we won’t have to wait another 20 years for the next one – it will be held next in the UK in 2023. But in addition to a fantastic[…]

October in preprints

Posted by on November 5th, 2019

Welcome to our monthly trawl for developmental biology (and related) preprints.  This month features a series of preprints on stem cell mechanics and tools to help you make organoids, some nectins and some nestins, plenty of auxin in our plant section, and some phantom crustaceans and macabre French genomics in our ‘Why Not’ section. They were[…]

September in preprints

Posted by on October 2nd, 2019

Welcome to our monthly trawl for developmental biology (and related) preprints.  In recent preprint news, CSHL, which runs bioRxiv, launched Transparent Review in Preprints (TRiP), a new project enabling journals and peer review services to post peer reviews of submitted manuscripts. In linked news EMBO Press and ASAPbio launched  Review Commons, a platform that peer-reviews research manuscripts in[…]

August in preprints

June in preprints

Posted by on July 5th, 2019

Welcome to our monthly trawl for developmental biology (and related) preprints.  Another big haul this month covering everything from great ape cerebral organoids to collectively contracting choanoflagellates, the genes that control iris development to the signals and forces making boundaries in the hindbrain. The preprints were hosted on bioRxiv, PeerJ, and arXiv. Let us know if we missed anything, and[…]

May in preprints

Posted by on June 3rd, 2019

Welcome to our monthly trawl for developmental biology (and related) preprints.  This month evo-devo is particularly well represented (from choanoflagellates to Portuguese men of war), and there’s a slew of single cell sequencing papers, lots on iPSC differentiation and some rooting around in our plant development section. The preprints were hosted on bioRxiv, PeerJ, and arXiv. Let us know if[…]

preLists – charting the waters of the preprint sea

Posted by on May 24th, 2019

We are happy to announce the launch of preLists, a new initiative within preLights where early-career researchers curate lists of preprints for the community. These lists follow two main themes: preprints on a specific topic or preprints which have been presented at scientific meetings. preLighters can also add brief one-liner summaries to each preprint, and[…]

April in preprints

Posted by on May 1st, 2019

Welcome to our monthly trawl for developmental biology (and related) preprints.  This month was notable for a preponderance of plant development preprints, many molecular maps (supported by single cell sequencing), a hearty helping of human development and a multiplicity of (Drosophila) melanogaster mechanics. The preprints were hosted on bioRxiv, PeerJ, and arXiv. Let us know if we missed anything, and[…]
