    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.

    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.

    Deconstruction of the beaten Path-Sidestep interaction network provides insights into neuromuscular system development

    Hanqing Li et al.
    A network, composed of 22 relatives of the Beaten Path and Sidestep immunoglobulin superfamily cell surface proteins, also includes several neuronal Beaten Path subfamily receptors which interact selectively with Sidestep subfamily proteins expressed on peripheral tissues.

    Extinction recall of fear memories formed before stress is not affected despite higher theta activity in the amygdala

    Mohammed Mostafizur Rahman et al.
    When the fear-enhancing effects of prior exposure to stress are absent, the expression of fear reflects normal neural activity in the medial prefrontal cortex, not stress-induced hyperactivity in the amygdala.

    Probe-Seq enables transcriptional profiling of specific cell types from heterogeneous tissue by RNA-based isolation

    Ryoji Amamoto et al.
    Probe-Seq is a cell type specific bulk RNA sequencing method that can be applied to a wide-ranging tissue types from both vertebrates and invertebrates without genetic labeling.

    Dilation of fusion pores by crowding of SNARE proteins

    Zhenyong Wu et al.
    A few SNARE complexes suffice to fuse membranes, but many more are needed to dilate the nascent fusion pore by molecular crowding for efficient neurotransmitter or hormone release during exocytosis.

    Modelling primaquine-induced haemolysis in G6PD deficiency

    James Watson et al.
    In silico modelling of all available data shows that a twenty-day ascending-dose primaquine regimen could be safe to administer to G6PD deficient patients for the radical cure of vivax malaria.

    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.

    Forniceal deep brain stimulation induces gene expression and splicing changes that promote neurogenesis and plasticity

    Amy E Pohodich et al.
    Forniceal deep brain stimulation is a promising treatment for several neuropsychiatric disorders as it upregulates synaptic and neurogenesis-associated genes, normalizes genes misregulated in Rett syndrome mice, and regulates genes altered in intellectual disability and major depression.

    Pan-neuronal screening in Caenorhabditis elegans reveals asymmetric dynamics of AWC neurons is critical for thermal avoidance behavior

    Ippei Kotera et al.
    Functional screening of the entire neuronal network of C. elegans in response to specific stimuli can discover new neural behavior.
