Developmental Biology (DB) is an official journal of the Society for Developmental Biology.

It publishes original research on mechanisms of development, differentiation, growth, homeostasis and regeneration in animals and plants at the molecular, cellular, genetic and evolutionary levels.

Areas of particular emphasis include transcriptional control mechanisms, embryonic patterning, cell-cell interactions, growth factors and signal transduction, and regulatory hierarchies in developing plants and animals.

Research Areas Include:

Regulation of stem cells and regeneration

Gene regulatory networks

Morphogenesis and self organization

Differentiation in vivo and in vitro (organoids)

Growth factors and oncogenes

Genetics and epigenetics of development

Evolution of developmental control

Analysis of development at the single cell level
