Cover: The cover image depicts the culturing of human colon organoids with extracellular matrix to support 3D architecture in high-density plates, which enables the use of such a physiologically relevant model system in the ultra-high-throughput format for accelerated biological research and drug discovery. See pages 630-643 by Du et al. for details.
