Zotero is a free, open-source research tool that combines classic reference management with now-common organizational functions, such as creating bookmarks, folders and tags. The program is distributed as a Firefox extension and appears as a web browser toolbar. When users view a web page featuring a journal article, book title, or even media such as film or music, Zotero detects the potential source and allows the user to automatically retrieve the file citation information without leaving the browser window. References can be tagged and annotated within Firefox, and PDFs and media files can be virtually paper-clipped onto the reference and saved for off-line browsing. Created by the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, Zotero is available in over 30 languages and is fully integrated with Microsoft Word and Open Office word processors, as well as blogging software such as Wordpress. Citation styles for many biomedical research journals are already available and the list continues to grow. Visit www.zotero.org to read about its additional features.

The Forest of Biologists
The Forest of Biologists is a biodiversity initiative created by The Company of Biologists, with support from the Woodland Trust. For every Research and Review article published in Disease Models & Mechanisms a native tree is planted in a UK forest. In addition to this we are protecting and restoring ancient woodland and are dedicating these trees to our peer reviewers. Visit our virtual forest to learn more.
Propose a new Workshop for 2025
Do you have an idea for a Workshop? If so, click here. We are now accepting proposals for our 2025 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 country to host an event overseas.
How stromal cells restrict liver cancer invasion
In our recent editor’s choice, Liqin Zhu and colleagues describe how they used in vitro liver spheroid models consisting of both parenchymal and non-parenchymal cells to reveal a hepatoprotective role for peritumoral hepatic stellate cells in liver tumorigenesis.
And from perspective… Hacking haematopoiesis – emerging tools for examining variant effects
Thousands of genomic loci have been linked to hematopoietic traits and diseases, yet many await functional validation. Michael Gundry and Vijay G. Sankaran discuss recent advances in genome editing and the challenges associated with using these techniques to assess variant function in primary hematopoietic cells.
