    Copy number variation and population-specific immune genes in the model vertebrate zebrafish

    Yannick Schäfer, Katja Palitzsch ... Jaanus Suurväli
    As a result of frequent gene duplication and haplotypic variation, a family of immune genes in the model vertebrate zebrafish has thousands of gene copies that are population- or individual-specific.

    A novel method for estimating properties of attentional oscillators reveals an age-related decline in flexibility

    Ece Kaya, Sonja A Kotz, Molly J Henry
    Individual performance in rhythm perception and production is maximized within a range of domain-specific rates and is adversely affected by temporal context, and this effect is amplified with age.

    Coordinated molecular and ecological adaptations underlie a highly successful parasitoid

    Lan Pang, Gangqi Fang ... Jianhua Huang
    The parasitoid Trichopria drosophilae has evolved both molecular adaptions (venom proteins and teratocytes) and ecological strategies (tolerance of intraspecific and avoidance of interspecific competition) to successfully parasitize Drosophila suzukii.

    The non-mitotic role of HMMR in regulating the localization of TPX2 and the dynamics of microtubules in neurons

    Yi-Ju Chen, Shun-Cheng Tseng ... Eric Hwang
    The protein hyaluronan-mediated motility receptor interacts with microtubules to enhance their stability and recruits TPX2 to promote microtubule emanation in neurons.
