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

BMC Series Focus Issues
For World AIDS day, the BMC Series Journals dedicate this month's focus issue to research on HIV and AIDS highlighting recent advancements in understanding the biology of the disease, the continued breakthroughs in diagnosis and treatment and also shed some light on what life with HIV is like.
The BMC Series journals would like to dedicate their November focus issue to the recent research into infections and health highlighting four key topics within research on infection - the biology, recent advances in detection and diagnosis, the risk factors and incidence reports and finally on the advances in treatment and combating of infection. Browse the articles in the focus issue further to learn more.
