Development is a leading primary research journal covering the field of developmental biology. With its long and prestigious history and its team of expert academic editors led by James Briscoe, Development is committed to publishing cutting-edge research across the spectrum of animal and plant developmental biology. Over recent years, Development has expanded its focus to incorporate the stem cell and regeneration fields, with the aim of underscoring the close links between these growing communities and more traditional developmental biology.
