    Muscle contraction is required to maintain the pool of muscle progenitors via YAP and NOTCH during fetal myogenesis

    Joana Esteves de Lima et al.
    A novel mechanism links mechanical signals with the molecular YAP and NOTCH signals operating during developmental myogenesis.

    Tree crickets optimize the acoustics of baffles to exaggerate their mate-attraction signal

    Natasha Mhatre et al.
    Tree crickets can optimize the baffles they make to increase call loudness without any progressive optimization, and manufacture an optimal baffle in a single attempt, by using a simple yet highly accurate heuristic.

    Embryonic Development: The evolution of hearing and balance

    Forrest P Weghorst, Karina S Cramer
    New genetic tools have allowed researchers to compare how the brainstem auditory and vestibular nuclei develop in embryonic chicks and mice.

    Brain Development: The impact of light during the night

    Sophia TC Leung et al.
    Exposing chicks to one hour of light during the night disrupts the releaseof a hormone that is needed by cells in the developing brain to survive.

    Structural characterization of ribosome recruitment and translocation by type IV IRES

    Jason Murray et al.
    A Internal Ribosomal Entry Site RNA has been visualised by high resolution cryoEM, trapped in the ribosome in an intermediate state of translocation.

    Dynamic transcriptional signature and cell fate analysis reveals plasticity of individual neural plate border cells

    Daniela Roellig et al.
    The vertebrate neural plate border is comprised of precursors that coexpress multiple lineage markers and small changes in their levels can bias border cell fate.

    CHARGE syndrome modeling using patient-iPSCs reveals defective migration of neural crest cells harboring CHD7 mutations

    Hironobu Okuno et al.
    Neural crest cells differentiated from patient-derived cells with mutations in the chromatin remodeler CHD7 show defective delamination, migration and motility in vitro, and defective migration in chick embryos.

    Species specific differences in use of ANP32 proteins by influenza A virus

    Jason S Long et al.
    Chicken ANP32A, and not chicken ANP32B, supports influenza polymerase activity and thus editing of this single gene may generate chickens that are resilient to influenza virus infection.

    Molecular shifts in limb identity underlie development of feathered feet in two domestic avian species

    Eric T Domyan et al.
    Feathered feet of pigeons and chickens result from a partial molecular and morphological transformation of legs to a wing-like identity.

    Cytoplasmic NOTCH and membrane-derived β-catenin link cell fate choice to epithelial-mesenchymal transition during myogenesis

    Daniel Sieiro et al.
    In chick skeletal muscle, an incoming signal leads to two interdependent outcomes: a cell fate change and an epithelial-mesenchymal transition.
