Wild-type Schizosaccharomyces pombe undergoing meiosis. DNA is visualized with histone-cherry, and one of the two homologues of centromere I is marked by a LacI-GFP binding to lacO array. The stages of meiosis, including horse-tailing and the MI (reduction) division, are highlighted in the call-outs. See the article by Forsburg et al. (doi:10.1242/bio.20135173).

hsa-miR29b, a critical downstream target of non-canonical Wnt signaling, plays an anti-proliferative role in non-small cell lung cancer cells via targeting MDM2 expression
The Forest of Biologists
We are excited to announce the launch of The Forest of Biologists, a new biodiversity initiative created with support from the Woodland Trust, aiming to counteract nature loss and safeguard some of the most critically endangered ecosystems for future generations. View our virtual forest here. For every Research Article and Review/Commentary article that is published in Biology Open, a native tree is planted in a forest in the UK.
Propose a new Workshop for 2025
Do you have an idea for a Workshop? We are now accepting proposals for our 2025 Biologists Workshops programme. As the scientific organiser, your involvement will be focused on the science. We'll take care of all the logistics. In 2025 we'll continue our efforts to diversify our Workshop programme and will be reserving one of our Workshops for an application from a Global South (GS) country to host an event overseas.
Resources for early-career researchers
BiO and our publisher The Company of Biologists offer a number of practical ways to help you meet the unique needs and challenges you may encounter as an early-career researcher (ECR). Visit our dedicated ECR webpage to find out more.
Have a paper that has been reviewed elsewhere? BiO is pleased to consider such manuscripts for fast-tracked decision making. Send us your manuscript together with the full set of reviews and decision letters, and we will make an initial decision in one week (or less).
Future Leader Reviews
BiO’s Future Leader Reviews help early-career researchers:
- Establish themselves in their field
- Find a foothold in a new area after a subject change post-PhD/postdoc
- Build their profile for grant, fellowship and job applications
