ERAs set a new, open standard for the transparency, interactivity and reproducibility of published research. Authored with popular tools such as Jupyter Notebooks and R Markdown, ERA is available for all papers published in eLife. Read about the experiences of our first authors in this Labs post. Our new collection showcases the breadth and variety of possibilities this new format offers. Find out more about how you can use ERA to enrich your research.

    1. Neuroscience

    Inter- and intra-animal variation in the integrative properties of stellate cells in the medial entorhinal cortex

    Hugh Pastoll et al.
    Setpoints that determine the integrative properties of neurons in the medial entorhinal cortex are established at a population level and differ between animals.

    Replication Study: Transcriptional amplification in tumor cells with elevated c-Myc

    L Michelle Lewis et al.
    Editors' Summary: This Replication Study has reproduced important parts of the original paper, but it also contains results that are not consistent with some parts of the original paper.
    1. Epidemiology and Global Health

    Collider bias and the apparent protective effect of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency on cerebral malaria

    James A Watson et al.
    Selection bias, also known as collider bias, likely explains the apparent protective effect of G6PD deficiency against cerebral falciparum malaria.

  1. Meta-Research: Evaluating the impact of open access policies on research institutions

    Chun-Kai (Karl) Huang et al.
    A longitudinal study of open access levels at 1,207 research institutions worldwide reveals high performing institutions in Latin America, Africa and Asia.

    2. Microbiology and Infectious Disease

    Formicine ants swallow their highly acidic poison for gut microbial selection and control

    Simon Tragust et al.
    Poison acidified crops sanitize food and limit disease transmission while at the same time structuring the gut microbiota and thus contribute to the ecological and evolutionary success of formicine ants.
    1. Neuroscience

    An interactive meta-analysis of MRI biomarkers of myelin

    Matteo Mancini et al.
    Most MRI-based myelin biomarkers are not statistically different regarding their relationship with histology.
    1. Computational and Systems Biology

    Stochastic logistic models reproduce experimental time series of microbial communities

    Lana Descheemaeker, Sophie de Buyl
    Properties of various microbial communities time series, such as the noise color and neutrality, are captured by stochastic generalized Lotka-Volterra equations, even in the absence of interactions.

    2. Medicine

    An agnostic study of associations between ABO and RhD blood group and phenome-wide disease risk

    Torsten Dahlén et al.
    The relationship between blood groups and disease is detangled, without preconceived ideas, using population-wide data, with millions of participants and lifetime follow-up, identifying not only previously known relationships but also new insights.
