How does a single cell generate a complete organism? The concerted changes in shape and function that take place during development, with commonalities and differences among species, and the specification of a rich variety of cell types truly amazed me when I was an undergraduate student. Currently, as a PhD student, it’s exciting to know that we are witnessing remarkable progress in the field of developmental biology with the help of the organoid technology. The works highlighted in this preLights’ post are milestones in the path to model embryonic development with enough fidelity and reproducibility. I was very happy to collaborate with Monica and Martin while writing this post. It wasn’t an easy task to summarize all relevant aspects of the two preprints, but they made the writing easier and smoother. Also, it was enriching to exchange our opinions while writing drafts, where I found we, very often, held similar views.
