    Methods for modeling development is our Method of the Year 2023, for the remarkable insights that recent methodological advances have enabled in our understanding of the molecular mechanisms of human embryogenesis.

  • Conference banner

    Advances in electron microscopy have spurred progress in the physical and life sciences. The 3rd Frontiers in Electron Microscopy for Physical and Life Sciences will bring together researchers working on cutting-edge electron microscopy technologies, with an emphasis on identifying and addressing new challenges, promoting synergies and developing the next generation of instruments and tools.

    We are looking to expand our journal scope to include more ecology papers, particularly those describing methods for quantitative analysis of ecological and evolutionary data. Published papers will be added to this Collection.

    Open for submissions

Nature Methods is a Transformative Journal; authors can publish using the traditional publishing route OR via immediate gold Open Access.

Our Open Access option complies with funder and institutional requirements.

  • Bats, the only flying mammals, comprise almost 25% of mammalian species. They are excellent navigators, highly social, and extremely long-lived. Their sense of echolocation has been studied for many years — but many species possess also excellent vision and olfaction. In recent years, bats have emerged as new models for neurobiology of navigation, social neuroscience, aging, and immunity.

  • Tissues and organs are inherently three-dimensional. Studies to understand their function and dysfunction should therefore aim to maintain the 3D spatial context.

  • Machine learning approaches can distinguish six different classes of presynapses from electron micrographs across the Drosophila brain.

    Research Highlight
  • Scientific breakthroughs can change how we understand and live in the world, disrupting long-held assumptions and concepts and raising new questions for philosophy and science. To address these challenges, we describe a model for collaboration of scientists with philosophers and ethicists, and its benefits to the research process and outcomes.
