Introducing the revamped preLights homepage

14 May 2024

As keen-eyed visitors may have noticed, the preLights homepage has undergone a makeover! The new homepage design – more closely resembling its sister sites the Node and FocalPlane – aims to offer a more visually appealing and user-friendly experience, making it easier for readers to discover the latest preprints in biology.

One notable update is the introduction of custom-designed icons for all 27 bioRxiv categories. These icons, specifically designed for preLights, provide a quick visual reference, making it effortless to identify topics of interest at a glance.

So keep an eye on the (revamped) preLights homepage and stay up-to-date on the latest, most exciting biological preprints!
