    A genetic selection reveals functional metastable structures embedded in a toxin-encoding mRNA

    Sara Masachis et al.
    A genetic selection of toxicity suppressors coupled to high-throughput sequencing has captured metastable RNA structures that co-transcriptionally inhibit the translation of a bacterial toxin.

  3. Anthropology in the bones: an interview with Zach Cofran

    Zach Cofran's career as a paleoanthropologist has taken him from the United States to Kazakhstan and South Africa, where he was part of the team that discovered the new hominin species, Homo naledi. He has just started a new job as an Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Vassar College, New York.

    Incomplete inhibition of HIV infection results in more HIV infected lymph node cells by reducing cell death

    Laurelle Jackson et al.
    Under conditions where the force of HIV infection per cell is high, partial attenuation of infection with inhibitors can increase the number of live infected cells and may paradoxically be beneficial for viral spread.

    Mechanisms that allow cortical preparatory activity without inappropriate movement

    Timothy R Darlington, Stephen G Lisberger
    The use of preparatory activity in the smooth eye movement region of the frontal eye fields as a visual-motor gain signal allows preparation to progress without inappropriate movement.
