    The Natural History of Model Organisms: The Norway rat, from an obnoxious pest to a laboratory pet

    Klaudia Modlinska, Wojciech Pisula
    The rat is much more than a simple model, and a better appreciation of the natural history of wild rats would increase its value as a research organism.

    Caterpillar-induced rice volatiles provide enemy-free space for the offspring of the brown planthopper

    Xiaoyun Hu et al.
    The brown planthopper has evolved a highly adaptive oviposition strategy by exploiting caterpillar-induced plant volatiles that provide safe havens for its offspring.

    Microsaccadic sampling of moving image information provides Drosophila hyperacute vision

    Mikko Juusola et al.
    New experiments and theory reveal how the ability to see image details depends upon photoreceptor function and eye movements, and how fruit flies (Drosophila) see spatial details beyond the optical limit of their compound eyes.

    Top-down machine learning approach for high-throughput single-molecule analysis

    David S White et al.
    A new analysis algorithm (DISC) enables accurate analysis of data from high-throughput single-molecule paradigms and reveals a non-cooperative binding mechanism of cyclic nucleotide-binding domains from HCN ion channels.

    Autophagy functions as an antiviral mechanism against geminiviruses in plants

    Yakupjan Haxim et al.
    Plant autophagy contributes to antiviral defense against geminiviruses by targeting one or more viral proteins for degradation.

    Geminivirus-encoded TrAP suppressor inhibits the histone methyltransferase SUVH4/KYP to counter host defense

    Claudia Castillo-González et al.
    A viral protein hijacks the key effector of transcriptional gene silencing, Su(var)3-9, to evade host plant surveillance.
