Skeletal Development and Evolution
The objective of our programme of research is to understand the development and evolution of vertebrate skeletal tissues, especially bone and cartilage. Bone is only found in vertebrates, but cartilage is found in several major invertebrate taxa. The focus of our work has been on the dermal (exo) skeleton, especially the head (craniofacial) skeleton, which arises from neural crest cells. We integrate developmental biology (comparative and experimental studies using embryos of extant taxa - frogs, fish, birds and reptiles), palaeontology (analysis of the skeleton, especially the dermal skeleton, in extinct taxa -reptilian and fish fossils), synthesis and integration (essays, reviews, chapters, columns, books) to understand how skeletal tissues develop and evolved. Our approach is:

(i) Mechanistic - how do skeletal cells differentiate, how do cells and tissues interact during development, how have developmental mechanisms changed through evolution to modify skeletal tissues and organs.

(ii) Comparative across four of the five Classes of vertebrates.

(iii) Integrative of molecular, cell, tissue, organ and organismal levels of organization and of the processes that emerge at, and are characteristic of, each level.

(iv) Integrative and interdisciplinary across the disciplines of cell, developmental and evolutionary biology, and palaeontology; and

(v) set in an evolutionary context -the evolution of developmental processes and how modifications of development brings about evolutionary change (evo-devo), both how old structures are modified (variation) and how new feature arise.

While integrated and integrative, the research programme has a number of subcomponents. These reflect (i) the various approaches to be taken; (ii) the multidisciplinary background of individuals in the laboratory (developmental, evolutionary, ichthyology, systematics, genetics and palaeontology are currently represented); (iii) the desirability of allowing those trained to take away their topic as their own, while being trained in an environment in which integration and transfer of approaches from other fields is encouraged through regular discussion, and especially, through the production of thrice-yearly columns for the Newsletter of the Palaeontology Association.

News and Announcements

NSF Solicitations 2012
Two components of NSF's Biology Directorate announce a significant change in proposal deadlines. This change is very important to SICB members who are considering submitting NSF proposals in the fields of Developmental Biology, including the development of the nervous system; on Evo/Devo research; and on research on Evolution and Systematics. It is effective immediately and will affect everyone who was planning to submit a proposal during 2012. We are no longer accepting full proposals in January. Instead, we will accept pre-proposals on January 12, 2012 and invite a subset of those to submit full proposals on August 2, 2012. Full proposals will not be accepted in January, and will be accepted in August by invitation only. If you are writing, or considering writing, a new proposal or a revision for January 2012, it must be submitted as a pre-proposal. If you were planning to submit a proposal during the summer of 2012, you must submit a pre-proposal in January 2012. An exception is proposals for CAREER awards, which may be submitted on the due date listed in the CAREER solicitation. They do not require pre-proposals.

New Open Access EvoDevo Journal
We would like to announce a brand new journal, EvoDevo (http://www.evodevojournal.com/) launched by BioMed Central, that is currently accepting manuscript submissions.

EvoDevo is an online, peer-reviewed open access journal that publishes articles associated with the translation of genotype to phenotype in a phylogenetic context. Understanding the history of life, the evolution of novelty and the generation of form, whether through embryogenesis, budding, or regeneration are amongst the greatest challenges in biology. We support the understanding of these processes though the many complementary approaches that characterize the field of evo-devo.

The focus of the journal is on research that promotes understanding of the pattern and process of morphological evolution. All articles that fulfill this aim will be welcome, including topics such as:

  • evolution of pattern formation

  • comparative gene function/expression

  • life history evolution

  • homology and character evolution

  • comparative genomics

  • phylogenetics and palaeontology

For further information on the journal and a list of the main areas of interest please see the 'About EvoDevo' page.

Submit your research to EvoDevo and take advantage of an efficient online submission process and a rapid, high quality peer-review service. There are no extra charges or limits on the number of color figures or movies you wish to include.

We are now accepting manuscripts to EvoDevo that will be modeled on Neural Development, a BioMed Central developmental neurobiology journal that you can find at www.neuraldevelopment.com. All BioMed Central journals are included in PubMed Central and other freely accessible full-text repositories. This complies with the open access policies of many funders including those of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, NIH, and Wellcome Trust.

So hurry up and submit your manuscript via our online submission system. For more information about the journal, contact editorial@evodevojournal.com or visit our instructions for authors.

Thanks!
