Innate Behavior: Flies spring a surprise
Johanna M Kobler, Ilona C Grunwald Kadow
A combination of genetic, anatomical and physiological techniques has revealed that the lateral horn, a region of the brain involved in olfaction in flies, has many more types of neurons than expected.
Chromosomes and Gene Expression
Genome Organization: Painting chromosomes in the nucleus
Cori K Cahoon, Diana E Libuda
A multiplexed approach to DNA FISH experiments has been used to visualize the three-dimensional organization of chromosomes and specific chromosomal regions in
Genetics and Genomics
Evolution: Of starch and spit
Mareike C Janiak
Animals living alongside humans have multiple copies of the gene for alpha-amylase, the enzyme that breaks down starchy foods, and high levels of this protein in their saliva.
Epidemiology and Global Health
Disease Risk: Mapping the emerging burden of dengue
The first nationally-representative survey of dengue has revealed the growing burden of the disease in Bangladesh.
Neurotransmitter Identity: A question of lineage
In the ventral nerve cord of fruit flies, neurons from the same hemilineage use the same neurotransmitter.
Immunology and Inflammation
T Cell Activation: The importance of methionine metabolism
Ramon I Klein Geltink, Erika L Pearce
T helper cells import methionine to synthesize new proteins and to provide the methyl groups needed for the methylation of RNA and DNA that drives T cell proliferation and differentiation.
Physics of Living Systems
Biophysics: Common concepts for bacterial collectives
Hannah Jeckel et al.
The expansion of bacterial swarms and the spreading of biofilms can be described by a unified biophysical theory that involves both active and passive processes.
Social Psychology: A mathematical look at empathy
Naoki Masuda, Francisco C Santos
When an individual makes a judgement about the actions of another individual, taking the latter's viewpoint into consideration enhances cooperation in society at large.
Brain and Behavior: Assessing reproducibility in association studies
Research that links brain structure with behavior needs more data, better analyses, and more intelligent approaches.
Cerebellum: Sensing how to balance
Fabrice Ango, Raphaël Dos Reis
How does the inner ear communicate with the cerebellar cortex to maintain balance and posture?
