Biology Open (BiO) is an Open Access journal that publishes rigorously conducted high-quality research across the breadth of the biological and biomedical sciences. It provides timely, thorough, constructive and fair peer review, with a focus on supporting researchers and reducing the pain to publish.

Our international board of research-active academic Editors, led by Editor-in-Chief Steven Kelly, comprises leaders in their respective fields. The BiO team is committed to Open Access publishing as a mechanism to widen access, promote equality and ensure sustainability in publishing in the biological and biomedical sciences.

Characterization of human nasal organoids from chronic rhinosinusitis patients  by Mahnaz Ramezanpour, Harrison Bolt, Karen Hon, Gohar Shaghayegh, Hadi Rastin, Kevin Aaron Fenix, James Psaltis Alkis, Peter-John Wormald and Sarah Vreugde

This study provides an effective and feasible method for the development of human nasal organoids from chronic rhinosinusitis patients, suitable for phenotypic high-throughput screening and drug-response research.

A hypomorphic mutation in Pold1 disrupts the coordination of embryo size expansion and morphogenesis during gastrulation  by Tingxu Chen, Heather Alcorn, Sujan Devbhandari, Dirk Remus, Elizabeth Lacy, Danwei Huangfu and Kathryn V. Anderson

Huangfu and colleagues show how hypomorphic mutation in Pold1 caused reduced size and abnormal morphology of gastrulating mouse embryos, highlighting the importance of coordinated embryo growth, lineage specification, and tissue morphogenesis for normal embryogenesis.
