Mechanisms of Development is an international journal that communicates current studies in developmental biology in any model system like animals and plants, these may focus on molecular and/or cellular mechanisms. MOD is the official journal of The International Society of Developmental Biologists (ISDB - http://www.developmental-biology.org) which supports the world-wide community of developmental biologists.
Areas of particular interest include:
Manuscripts involving in vitro approaches to study mechanisms relevant to developmental biology; e.g., cell culture assays to study stem cell properties or basic cell biological mechanisms are also accepted and we also welcome studies using modelling approaches that are firmly rooted in experimental data.
Mechanisms of Development does not publish descriptive studies of gene expression patterns and molecular screens; for submission of such studies see Gene Expression Patterns
