  1. eLife launches Executable Research Articles for publishing computationally reproducible results

    Authors with a published eLife paper can now enrich their work with embedded code blocks and computed outputs to make their results more transparent, interactive and reproducible.

    Species competition and cooperation influence vulnerability to climate change

    Some species work together to maximise their fitness at suboptimal temperatures in the presence of competitors, making them especially vulnerable to habitat destruction in the face of climate change.

    Modelling parasitic worm metabolism suggests strategy for developing new drugs against infection

    Scientists have identified drugs that stunt the growth of a parasite by interfering with metabolic pathways that they and the bacteria living within them share to survive.

    Protein uses two antiviral strategies to ward off infections

    New findings suggest a protein called MARCH8 fends off HIV and vesicular stomatitis virus infections using two different strategies.

    Altered lipid metabolism following childbirth predicts later diabetes risk

    Measuring postpartum changes in lipid metabolism in women who had gestational diabetes may identify those at risk of developing type 2 diabetes and enable them to receive preventive care.

    Tradeoff between the eyes and nose helps flies find their niche

    Flies evolve to optimise their use of different sensory organs, allowing them to carve out their niche in a habitat shared with close relatives.

    Studies shed new light on how biodiversity influences plant decay

    Two independent studies exploring how biodiversity impacts plant decay in forests worldwide could help predict the potential effect of species loss on ecosystems.

    Study reveals greater excitability in social brain regions of autistic men compared to women

    New findings suggest that autistic men, but not women, have enhanced neural excitability in their social brain regions, and this may impact their ability to navigate social situations.
