    Foggy perception slows us down

    Paolo Pretto et al.
    Virtual reality experiments show that motorists slow down when driving in fog, but they speed up when visibility is reduced equally at all distances.

    Ribosome structures to near-atomic resolution from thirty thousand cryo-EM particles

    Xiao-chen Bai et al.
    A combination of direct-electron detectors and statistical movie processing allows ribosome cryo-EM structures to be determined to resolutions that were previously only attainable by X-ray crystallography.

    Predicting mosquito infection from Plasmodium falciparum gametocyte density and estimating the reservoir of infection

    Thomas S Churcher et al.
    Identifying and treating those groups of individuals that are most likely to transmit the malaria parasite to mosquitoes could help to control the spread of the disease.

    The rise and fall of the Phytophthora infestans lineage that triggered the Irish potato famine

    Kentaro Yoshida et al.
    The strain of Phytophthora infestans that caused the Great Famine in the late 1840s was caused by a single genotype that is distinct from, but closely related to, the most prevalent modern genotype.

    Passive and active DNA methylation and the interplay with genetic variation in gene regulation

    Maria Gutierrez-Arcelus et al.
    Detailed analysis of umbilical cord cells shows that the associations between DNA methylation, gene expression and genetic variation are complex and context-dependent.

    The genome sequence of the colonial chordate, Botryllus schlosseri

    Ayelet Voskoboynik et al.
    The Botryllus schlosseri genome yields insights into the evolution of hematopoiesis.

    Direct single molecule measurement of TCR triggering by agonist pMHC in living primary T cells

    Geoff P O'Donoghue et al.
    Quantitative observations of single-molecule binding between antigen and T cell receptor (TCR) in living primary T cells reveals unbinding kinetics, stoichiometry and signaling molecule recruitment, providing insights into the mechanisms of antigen recognition by the immune system.

    Cellular resolution models for even skipped regulation in the entire Drosophila embryo

    Garth R Ilsley et al.
    A statistical model is able to predict patterns of gene expression output in Drosophila embryos using only the cellular concentrations of transcription factors as input.

    Episode 4: September 2013

    In this episode we hear about how flatworms regenerate, the evolution of photosynthesis, social interactions between mice, the properties of undead cells, and how steroids and genes interact.
