The Evolutionary developmental biology section considers manuscripts describing the developmental processes of different organisms to infer the ancestral relationships between them and how much orthologous genes drive orthologous, convergent or innovative developmental processes to cite a few evolutionary mechanisms. Also considers manuscripts on morphological evolution, establishment of evolutionarily defined patterns and emerging toolkits and any software developed to study EvoDevo. Also considers manuscripts on developmental plasticity, epigenetic inheritance, genetic assimilation, niche construction and symbiosis.
A practical staging atlas to study embryonic development of Octopus vulgaris under controlled laboratory conditions
Octopus vulgaris has been an iconic cephalopod species for neurobiology research as well as for cephalopod aquaculture. It is one of the most intelligent and well-studied invertebrates, possessing both long- and ...
