SDB Collaborative Resources
By Marsha E. Lucas
SDB Collaborative Resources (CoRe), our new online community for learning about developmental biology
has now launched. The goal of CoRe is to provide short, authoritative, image-driven explanations of basic concepts in developmental biology.
It is free and open to all.
SDB CoRe is easily-searchable and can be browsed by
topic, organism, or featured objects. All objects
have short descriptions aimed at helping users learn
something about development with glossary words
highlighted in green.
Object pages contain references as well as links to related CoRe objects, links to reviews in
Developmental Biology, and when relevant, to original research papers in SDB’s official journal
Users can create a
