    Rapid purification and metabolomic profiling of synaptic vesicles from mammalian brain

    Lynne Chantranupong et al.
    Extensive mass spectrometry-based profiling of polar metabolites within synaptic vesicles that are rapidly isolated either from cultured mouse neurons or directly from mouse brains reveals their neurotransmitter composition.

    A physicochemical perspective of aging from single-cell analysis of pH, macromolecular and organellar crowding in yeast

    Sara N Mouton et al.
    In mitotically aging yeast cells, the cytosol acidifies, the distances between the organellar membranes decrease dramatically, but crowding on the scale of the average size protein is relatively stable.

    A whole-brain connectivity map of mouse insular cortex

    Daniel A Gehrlach et al.
    Whole-brain in- and outputs of inhibitory and excitatory neurons located in distinct subregions of the mouse insular cortex were mapped using viral-tracing strategies.

    BiteOscope, an open platform to study mosquito biting behavior

    Felix JH Hol et al.
    A new tool to visualize blood-feeding mosquitoes in high resolution and quantitatively characterize their behavior sheds light on contact-dependent sensing and blood-feeding dynamics of several medically relevant mosquito species.
