    Knowledge synthesis of 100 million biomedical documents augments the deep expression profiling of coronavirus receptors

    AJ Venkatakrishnan et al.
    SARS-CoV-2 receptor ACE2 is expressed in nasal olfactory epithelia, tongue keratinocytes and small intestine enterocytes, connected with the COVID-19 patient phenotypes such as anosmia and diarrhea.

    Trends in snakebite deaths in India from 2000 to 2019 in a nationally representative mortality study

    Wilson Suraweera et al.
    Prevention and antivenom treatment could reduce snakebite deaths, which killed 1.2 million Indians from 2000-2019, about 70% of which occurred in eight states, and half during four rainy months.

    Differentiating between integration and non-integration strategies in perceptual decision making

    Gabriel M Stine et al.
    The determination that a decision-maker integrated evidence to form perceptual decisions is shown to be much more difficult than previously appreciated.

    Science Forum: The single-cell eQTLGen consortium

    MGP van der Wijst et al.
    The single-cell eQTLGen consortium aims to pinpoint the cellular contexts in which disease-causing genetic variants affect gene expression and its regulation.

    Guanidine hydrochloride reactivates an ancient septin hetero-oligomer assembly pathway in budding yeast

    Courtney R Johnson et al.
    A naturally-occurring small molecule acts as a chemical chaperone in vivo to alter the folding of a budding yeast septin and promote an oligomerization pathway that was lost during evolution.

    An alternatively spliced, non-signaling insulin receptor modulates insulin sensitivity via insulin peptide sequestration in C. elegans

    Bryan A Martinez et al.
    A truncated, non-signaling insulin receptor regulates insulin sensitivity in the nematode C. elegans by sequestering insulin peptides and preventing their interaction with full length receptors.

    Attacks on genetic privacy via uploads to genealogical databases

    Michael D Edge, Graham Coop
    Direct-to-consumer genetic genealogy services that allow users to upload their own datasets are vulnerable to attacks on genetic privacy that exploit the structure of genetic variation.
