The birth of vision

Posted by on September 9th, 2019

By decoding the genetic mechanisms that control the neurons of the visual system, researchers at UNIGE are unveiling the first steps in the construction of vision, paving the way for regenerative eye medicine. A Press Release from the University of Geneva.   How is the retina formed? And how do neurons differentiate to become individual[…]

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[…]

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 is pleased to welcome submissions for an upcoming special issue on ‘Development at the single cell level’. This special issue aims to showcase the best research in stem cell and developmental biology, building on the rapidly evolving tools of single cell analysis. The issue will be guest-edited by Allon Klein and Barbara Treutlein, working alongside our team of[…]

PhD position: Single-cell elucidation of the evolution of an embryonic transcriptional programme

Posted by on April 3rd, 2018

The project: Single-cell approaches are revolutionizing developmental biology. We can now  trace in time the behavior of each cell in a live developing organism (1). In parallel, single-cell transcriptomics and genomics gives access to the transcriptional state of each cell (2). Combination of these two approaches promises to unravel how genomic information translates into individual[…]
