    Identifying molecular features that are associated with biological function of intrinsically disordered protein regions

    Taraneh Zarin et al.
    A statistical model systematically associates functions of intrinsically disordered regions with sequence-distributed molecular features such as charge, residue composition, or repeat content.

    EKLF/KLF1 expression defines a unique macrophage subset during mouse erythropoiesis

    Kaustav Mukherjee et al.
    Mouse fetal liver macrophages that support erythroid differentiation within erythroblastic islands exhibit a unique and transient expression signature under transcriptional control of EKLF/KLF1.

    Phasic oxygen dynamics confounds fast choline-sensitive biosensor signals in the brain of behaving rodents

    Ricardo M Santos, Anton Sirota
    Fast fluctuations of oxygen, linked to behavioral and neural dynamics in vivo, cause phasic transients is amperometry-measured cholinergic signals via the mechanism of non-steady-state enzyme kinetics in the choline-oxidase-based biosensor.

    Exocyst-mediated membrane trafficking of the lissencephaly-associated ECM receptor dystroglycan is required for proper brain compartmentalization

    Andriy S Yatsenko et al.
    Neuronal interacting proteome reveals that the cellular dynamics of the lissencephaly-associated extracellular matrix receptor dystroglycan are governed by the exocyst complex, which is key for proper brain assembly.

    Viral load and contact heterogeneity predict SARS-CoV-2 transmission and super-spreading events

    Ashish Goyal et al.
    A mathematical model was used to establish a simple conceptual basis for why super-spreader events fundamentally drive the spread of SARS-CoV-2 but not influenza.

    Dissecting phenotypic transitions in metastatic disease via photoconversion-based isolation

    Yogev Sela et al.
    A photoconversion-based isolation technique enables systematic investigation of spatially distinct small metastases (microcolonies) versus large lesions (macrometastases).
