    Systematic perturbation of retroviral LTRs reveals widespread long-range effects on human gene regulation

    Daniel R Fuentes et al.
    A new approach combines guide RNA multiplexing with CRISPR activation and interference to facilitate functional studies of transposable elements present in hundreds of copies throughout the human genome.

    Dissection of specific binding of HIV-1 Gag to the 'packaging signal' in viral RNA

    Mauricio Comas-Garcia et al.
    While HIV-1 Gag protein binds tightly to several RNAs, it binds to the viral RNA 'packaging signal' with higher specificity than to control RNAs.

    A simple and effective F0 knockout method for rapid screening of behaviour and other complex phenotypes

    François Kroll et al.
    Zebrafish knockouts can be generated in a few hours directly from wild-type eggs and are suitable for studying continuous traits, including behaviour.

    Motor control of Drosophila feeding behavior

    Olivia Schwarz et al.
    The neuroanatomical and functional analysis of genetically-identified motoneurons controlling all major steps of Drosophila proboscis extension provides new insights into the architecture of a motor circuitry controlling a reaching-like behavior.

    Immediate perception of a reward is distinct from the reward’s long-term salience

    John P McGinnis et al.
    The experiences that are most rewarding at the time are not necessarily those that are remembered long-term.

    MELK expression correlates with tumor mitotic activity but is not required for cancer growth

    Christopher J Giuliano et al.
    Cancer cells can grow in vitro and in vivo in the absence of maternal embryonic leucine zipper kinase (MELK).

    Splicing variation of BMP2K balances abundance of COPII assemblies and autophagic degradation in erythroid cells

    Jaroslaw Cendrowski et al.
    Erythroid-enriched BMP2K kinase, in addition to its predicted function in endocytosis, regulates distribution and abundance of COPII assemblies and autophagic degradation through opposing actions of its two splicing variants.

    Parallel CRISPR-Cas9 screens clarify impacts of p53 on screen performance

    Anne Ramsay Bowden et al.
    The protein p53 negatively impacts the ability of a CRISPR screen to discriminate between essential and non-essential genes, hence, p53 status should be considered in these screens.

    Programmed knockout mutation of liver fluke granulin attenuates virulence of infection-induced hepatobiliary morbidity

    Patpicha Arunsan et al.
    Gene knockout of liver fluke granulin by CRISPR/Cas9 attenuates the virulence of infection with a carcinogenic liver fluke.

    A genome engineering resource to uncover principles of cellular organization and tissue architecture by lipid signaling

    Deepti Trivedi et al.
    A genome editing resource for discovering, in Drosophila, the organization of cellular structure and function by phosphoinositide signaling.
