Welcome to the Node

Welcome to the Node: the community site for and by developmental biologists. The Node is a place for you to share news from the developmental biology community, to discuss relevant topics or just see what’s new. And you can do more than reading – we are a community site, so anyone can post on the Node after creating an account. The Node is run by the journal Development and its publisher, The Company of Biologists. We get around 20,000 visitors per month, and typically publish one post per day.

Fund for the Replacement of Animals in Medical Experiments (FRAME)

FRAME is dedicated to the development of new and valid methods that will replace the need for laboratory animals in medical and scientific research, education, and testing. Where the use of animals is currently necessary, FRAME supports the reduction of numbers involved to an unavoidable minimum and refinement of experimental procedures to minimise any suffering caused. The E-learning resource of FRAME has been set up to provide teachers, school children, students and general supporters with information about the different areas of animal experimentation and with specific resources as to how it can be reduced, refined or replaced.

3rs-Reduction

3rs-Reduction is a new interactive web-site designed to help scientists to improve the design of their animal experiments. Animal experiments are not always well designed, leading to both ethical concerns and a waste of scientific resources. This is a world-wide problem. Training scientists is difficult as there so are few statisticians with a good understanding of laboratory animal science able to provide such training. This new web-site is designed to help scientists to teach themselves the necessary skills. After an introduction on the ethics of animal experimentation, showing that improvements are needed, it goes on to  cover choice of experimental units, avoiding bias, power and sample size, controlling variability, types of experimental design, factorial experiments, statistical analysis and publication guidelines. Most sections are followed by a "Test yourself" page of true/false questions. The web-site is free.

Humane Endpoints Website

Humane Endpoints Website is provided by 3Rs-Centre Utrecht Life Sciences, gives insight into the recognition and application of humane endpoints in rodents. The website contributes to refinement, the prevention of unnecessary suffering in laboratory animals, by offering information, videos and photographs of rodent species. In addition, the website provides free training modules (accessible after registration). The site is currently available in EN, NL and FR. DE and ES will follow soon.
