What's cool in Dev Bio


  • Gary C. Schoenwolf

With the article by Julie Kieffer entitled, “Molecular Mechanisms of Early Gut Organogenesis: A Primer on Development of the Digestive Tract,” (Article) we launch a new section of Developmental Dynamics called: “What's Cool in Dev Bio.” In “Cool” articles, a topic of broad interest will be covered for the non-specialist in a primer-like fashion. The goal of these articles is to bring the general reader up to speed regarding significant advances in our understanding of development and birth defects, and to demonstrate the importance and excitement of the area. I hope that you will enjoy reading this section and I welcome your comments and suggestions for future topics.
