Identification of vital candidate microRNA/mRNA pairs regulating ovule development using high-throughput sequencing in hazel
The first study published in the new 'Plant development' section, investigates ovule development at the level of post-transcriptional regulation towards better understanding of developmental processes in Hazelnut.
Multiple functions of the scaffold protein Discs large 5 in the control of growth, cell polarity and cell adhesion in Drosophila melanogaster
This recent study published in the new 'Morphogenesis and mechanobiology' section shows that Dlg5 has several conserved independent functions regulating growth, cell polarity and cell adhesion.
In a first-of-its-kind breakthrough study, researchers are able to generate and sustain long-term expansion of human pancreatic organoids from pancreas ductal cells that show genetic stability over time.
The Editors of BMC Developmental Biology, BMC Ecology and Evolution, and EvoDevo welcome submissions to the cross-journal special issue on eco-evo-devo, the effect of the environment of development and evolution. Please click the above link for further information and to submit to the collection.
The special issue is open for submissions.
The Editors of BMC Developmental Biology are pleased to announce the launch of five new sections to acknowledge the growing field of developmental biology:
● Stem cell biology and cellular reprogramming
● Organogenesis and organoids
● Morphogenesis and mechanobiology
● Development and disease
● Plant development
Aims and scope
BMC Series Focus Issues
In preparation for Earth Day on 22nd April, the BMC Series presents a focus issue on Our Changing Environment, highlighting research from across the journals on climate change, conservation, pollution, and the impact of environmental changes on human health and disease.
With the 28th of February marking World Rare Diseases day, the BMC Series this month looks at highlighting research on the Rare diseases that together affect around 10% of the population. Read the full collection of articles here.
