Announcement

As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

Long-term expansion, genomic stability and in vivo safety of adult human pancreas organoids 

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. 

Call for papers: Eco-evo-devo

The Editors of BMC Developmental Biology, BMC Ecology and BMC Evolutionary Biology 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.

BMC Series Focus Issues

May: Gut microbiome and digestive health

To commemorate World Digestive Health Day that is celebrated annually on 29th of May, this month we focus on Gut microbiome and digestive health. Here is a selection of manuscripts from different BMC Series Journals focusing on either gut microbiome or on digestive health in insects, animals and humans.

Section Editors

Brett Nixon, Section Editor

Dr. Brett Nixon is a Professor of Biological Sciences at University of Newcastle in Australia.  Dr. Nixon’s research interests focus on understanding the mechanistic basis of male germ cell development. Through the study of model species as diverse as crocodiles, platypus and humans, his ongoing research has broad application for the diagnosis of sperm dysfunction, the design of novel therapeutic intervention strategies to alleviate the burden of male infertility, and assisted reproductive strategies for wildlife conservation.
