Cover ImageCover: The skeleton of the carapace of the soft-shelled turtle Pelodiscus sinensis. The carapace is based on the ribs that have shifted their positions dorsally and laterally. Development of the carapace begins as the carapacial ridge, the turtle-specific primordium formed of somite-derived dermis, arises on the lateral aspect of the flank.

preLights 5th Birthday webinar
preLights, our preprint highlighting service, is celebrating its 5th birthday this year. To mark the occasion, join us online on 14 March 2023 at 16:00 GMT for a discussion, led by four preLights alumni, on how to identify and navigate the challenges and opportunities while shaping your career as an early-career researcher.
Transitions in development: Daniel Grimes
Daniel Grimes’s lab studies the consequences of ciliary mutations, including left-right patterning defects and scoliosis. We interviewed Daniel to find out more about his career path, his experience of becoming a group leader and the influence of Jurassic Park.
Preprints in Development
As part of our efforts to support the use of preprints and help curate the preprint literature, we are delighted to launch a new article type: ‘In preprints’. These pieces will discuss one or more recent preprints and place them in a broader context.
