CRISPR babies: a view from the centre of the storm

Posted by on February 8th, 2019

This article by Robin Lovell-Badge, published this week in Development, gives a front-row view of the CRISPR babies scandal from last year. When the story broke, we collated reactions from the field – be sure to check them out too.  Towards the end of November 2018, news broke that the Chinese researcher He Jiankui had[…]

Improving the visibility of developmental biology: time for induction and specification

Posted by on February 6th, 2019

This Spotlight article by Len Zon originally appeared in Development as part of our ‘Advocating developmental biology‘ campaign. We’d love to hear what you think about Len’s ideas. Developmental biology is a prominent field that has captured the imagination of many scientists. Over the years, research in the area has seen a steady number of[…]

The people behind the papers – Dongbo Shi and Thomas Greb

Posted by on January 19th, 2019

This interview, the 56th in our series, was recently published in Development Radial growth in plants is driven by proliferating cells in the cambium that give rise to the vascular tissues of xylem and phloem, and increases plant girth. However, the identity and dynamics of the stem cells that drive this crucial process remain poorly understood. A[…]
