Developmental Dynamics publishes cutting-edge research in the field of
developmental biology, focusing on morphogenesis‹the study of the emergence
of form during embryogenesis. The journal includes articles ranging from the
theoretical to the analytical, and it covers all levels of biological
organization and model systems.
Emphasizing tissue, cellular and molecular-genetic mechanisms of
morphogenesis, Developmental Dynamics publishes research articles, topic
reviews, hot new techniques, expression patterns, mutant phenotypes, book
reviews and meeting reviews. The section entitled Patterns & Phenotypes
highlights important descriptive studies, especially those illustrating gene
and protein expression patterns, as well as phenotypes resulting from
mutagenesis or gene mis-expression.
Topic reviews are fully peer reviewed and comprise both short perspectives
and longer comprehensive reviews on timely topics, and they present critical
syntheses, innovative thinking and new approaches to problems in development
at every level of organization.
Developmental Dynamics, an official publication of the American Association
of Anatomists, provides a focus for communication among developmental
biologists who study the emergence of form during embryonic development. The
journal is an international forum for the exchange of novel and significant
information gained from analytical and theoretical investigations on the
mechanisms that control morphogenesis.
Developmental Dynamics seeks manuscripts on work done at all levels of
biological organization, ranging from the molecular to the organismal.
Representative topics of Interest Include:
* Mechanisms underlying morphogenesis Pattern formation;
* Tissue organization and repair;
* Transcriptional and post-transcriptional controls governing the emergence
of diverse biologic form;
* Analytical methods for the visualization of molecular, cytologic, and
ultrastructural aspects of dynamic developmental processes;
* Cell-cell signalling and cell-matrix interactions;
* Genetic and molecular probes for the study of cell lineages and
* Transgenic approaches for studying the control of tissue- and
organ-specific gene expression;
* Mathematical models of morphogenetic processes.
