    The evolution of drug resistance in clinical isolates of Candida albicans

    Christopher B Ford et al.
    Loss-of-heterozygosity mutations, but not aneuploidies, are linked to the evolution of drug resistance in Candida albicans isolated from immunocompromised patients.

    Mitochondrial genetic diversity, selection and recombination in a canine transmissible cancer

    Andrea Strakova et al.
    Genetics of a canine transmissible tumour show how the world’s oldest cancer “metastasised” through the global dog population – and captured, maintained and rearranged its mitochondrial DNA along the way.

    Evidence for suppression of immunity as a driver for genomic introgressions and host range expansion in races of Albugo candida, a generalist parasite

    Mark McMullan et al.
    Hybridization and introgression blur species boundaries and broaden genetic diversity available for adaptation; and widespread introgression underpins the evolution of races of the generalist pathogen Albugo candida that specialise on different host plant species.

    Evolution of the complex transcription network controlling biofilm formation in Candida species

    Eugenio Mancera et al.
    The transcription networks controlling biofilm formation in Candida species exhibit 'structural' similarities, but show gradual substitutions of transcription regulators and frequent changes in target genes.

    Genome plasticity in Candida albicans is driven by long repeat sequences

    Robert T Todd et al.
    Previously uncharacterized long repeat sequences are associated with significant genome variation that can increase fitness and promote antifungal drug resistance in diverse isolates of Candida albicans.

    A gene horizontally transferred from bacteria protects arthropods from host plant cyanide poisoning

    Nicky Wybouw et al.
    The enzyme that allows some mites and insects to detoxify the hydrogen cyanide produced by plants has been identified.

    Integrin-based diffusion barrier separates membrane domains enabling the formation of microbiostatic frustrated phagosomes

    Michelle E Maxson et al.
    The diffusional barrier formed between phagocyte integrin and fungal glucans preserves the microbiostatic phagocytic environment generated during the frustrated phagocytosis of Candida albicans hypha.

    Optogenetic dissection of descending behavioral control in Drosophila

    Jessica Cande et al.
    Optogenetically activated individual descending neurons in Drosophila melanogaster drive varied stereotyped motor patterns that are often influenced by the animal's initial behavioral state.

    Ordered arrangement of dendrites within a C. elegans sensory nerve bundle

    Zhiqi Candice Yip, Maxwell G Heiman
    A nerve bundle is not simply a cable of wires, but has order within it.

    Expandable and reversible copy number amplification drives rapid adaptation to antifungal drugs

    Robert T Todd, Anna Selmecki
    Novel segmental chromosome amplifications in Candida albicans provide rapid adaptation to the most widely used antifungal drugs.
