    A gene-specific T2A-GAL4 library for Drosophila

    Pei-Tseng Lee et al.
    A library of a thousand gene-specific intronic GAL4 insertions was generated, which caused a severe loss of function, permitted the assessing of gene expression, allowed the rescue of mutated gene with UAS-cDNA constructs, and provided a tool for the reversion of mutant phenotypes in specific cells or tissues.

    Evolution and cell-type specificity of human-specific genes preferentially expressed in progenitors of fetal neocortex

    Marta Florio et al.
    Transcriptomic and genomic analysis provides a resource of 50 primate-specific genes preferentially expressed in neural progenitors of fetal human neocortex, 15 of which are specific to humans.
    1. Neuroscience

    A spike sorting toolbox for up to thousands of electrodes validated with ground truth recordings in vitro and in vivo

    Pierre Yger et al.
    A spike sorting toolbox to quickly and reliably access the activity of thousands of neurons recorded with dense extracellular probes.

    2. Immunology and Inflammation

    Method for identification of condition-associated public antigen receptor sequences

    Mikhail V Pogorelyy et al.
    Without using control cohorts, a statistical method identifies candidates for immune receptors associated with diseases from repertoire sequencing datasets.

    Efficient and accurate extraction of in vivo calcium signals from microendoscopic video data

    Pengcheng Zhou et al.
    A new open-source computational toolbox for processing in vivo microendoscopic calcium imaging data performs signal demixing and denoising much more accurately than previously available methods, significantly improving the utility of this imaging modality.

    Single-cell RNA-seq reveals hidden transcriptional variation in malaria parasites

    Adam J Reid et al.
    Plasmodium parasite transcription shifts dramatically along asexual development, and transmission stages variably express important immune evasion genes, suggesting much interesting biology has until now been hidden by bulk analyses.

    Automated analysis of long-term grooming behavior in Drosophila using a k-nearest neighbors classifier

    Bing Qiao et al.
    Drosophila grooming is driven by two internal programs.

    cisTEM, user-friendly software for single-particle image processing

    Timothy Grant et al.
    cisTEM enables fast processing of single-particle cryo-EM data on CPU-based workstations and is easily accessible to new users.

    A universal vector concept for a direct genotyping of transgenic organisms and a systematic creation of homozygous lines

    Frederic Strobl et al.
    In transgenesis assays involving diploid model organisms, two clearly distinguishable transformation markers embedded in interweaved, but incompatible Lox site pairs allow the systematic creation of homozygous transgenic lines and minimize the number of wasted animals.
    1. Neuroscience

    Simultaneous two-photon imaging and two-photon optogenetics of cortical circuits in three dimensions

    Weijian Yang et al.
    An all-optical 3D two-photon imaging and photostimulation platform was demonstrated, with the capability to precisely stimulate a large group of cells in mice cortex in vivo with low laser power.
