eLife Feature Articles allow authors to discuss science policy and funding, careers in science, research conduct, public engagement, and a variety of other topics related to science and research.
Human Biology and Medicine
Meta-Research: Why we need to report more than 'Data were Analyzed by t-tests or ANOVA'
Tracey L Weissgerber et al.
Many papers in basic biomedical science do not contain the information that is needed to determine what statistical tests were used and to verify the results of these tests.
The Natural History of Model Organisms:
, an 'instant' fish from an ephemeral habitat
Martin Reichard, Matej Polačik
The turquoise killifish from ephemeral pools in African savannah combines extremely short lifespan with a standard vertebrate body plan – ideal attributes for a laboratory animal.
Living Science: Uniting the nations of science
As the world becomes smaller and more uniform, it is important to remember that creativity in science can happen anywhere.
Point of View: Europe’s first and last field trial of gene-edited plants?
Jean-Denis Faure, Johnathan A Napier
The reclassification of gene editing as "GM" will impact on European plant sciences, making it more difficult to validate new traits in field trials and drive forward innovation.
Research: United States National Postdoc Survey results and the interaction of gender, career choice and mentor impact
Sean C McConnell et al.
The quality of mentoring received while a postdoc influences career choice irrespective of field, gender, or ethnicity, according to a 7,603-respondent postdoc survey.
Point of View: Managing a sustainable deep-sea ‘blue economy’ requires knowledge of what actually lives there
Adrian G Glover et al.
High-throughput, integrative taxonomy has a crucial role to play in ensuring that the resources in our oceans are managed and developed in a sustainable manner.
The Natural History of Model Organisms: From molecular manipulation of domesticated
to survival in nature
Severin Sasso et al.
Dubbed the 'green yeast', the model alga
has profoundly advanced many areas of biology, but much remains to be learnt about its life in the wild.
2018 Gairdner Awards: The past, present and future of light-gated ion channels and optogenetics
Sheena A Josselyn
Research into light-gated ion channels called channelrhodospins laid the foundations for the development of optogenetics, a technique that has gone on to revolutionize neuroscience.
Genetics and Genomics
2018 Gairdner Awards: The discovery and importance of genomic imprinting
Anne C Ferguson-Smith, Deborah Bourc'his
Research into genomic imprinting has provided a foundation for the study of epigenetic mechanisms, especially during development, and has also shed light on a range of rare genetic disorders and common diseases.
Global Science: Barriers in Bangladesh
Senjuti Saha et al.
An international effort is needed to overcome the paywalls, customs regulations and lack of local suppliers that hinder research in low- and middle-income countries.
