    Comparative genomics explains the evolutionary success of reef-forming corals

    Debashish Bhattacharya et al.
    The analysis of 20 coral genomic datasets provides unprecedented insights into what makes reef-building corals unique, including the evolution of novel gene families involved in biomineralization, signaling and stress responses that have led to their evolutionary success throughout the Phanerozoic Eon.

    HIPK4 is essential for murine spermiogenesis

    J Aaron Crapster et al.
    HIPK4 is a male germ cell-enriched kinase that regulates cytoskeletal rearrangements in spermatids during spermiogenesis and is required for male fertility in mice.
