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.
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.
Physics of Living Systems
Point of View: Are theoretical results ‘Results’?
Raymond E Goldstein
There should be a prominent place for theory within biology papers, both as Results in papers that combine experiment and theory, and as Results in theory papers.
Living Science: The voice of evidence
In an era in which evidence is being disregarded, scientists need to speak up in support of the pursuit for truth.
Human Biology and Medicine
Point of View: Predictive regulation and human design
Why does the human regulatory system, which evolution tuned for small satisfactions, now constantly demand 'more'?
Human Biology and Medicine
Point of View: Competency-based assessment for the training of PhD students and early-career scientists
Michael F Verderame et al.
A method to assess the training of scientists, based on a set of 10 core competencies, is proposed.
Point of View: Journal clubs in the time of preprints
Prachee Avasthi et al.
Early-career researchers can learn about peer review by discussing preprints at journal clubs and sending feedback to the authors.
