    Seizures are a druggable mechanistic link between TBI and subsequent tauopathy

    Hadeel Alyenbaawi et al.
    A traumatic brain injury model is invented for larval zebrafish and applied to a new fluorescent 'tauopathy reporter fish', revealing a role for seizures in progression towards dementias.

    Effects of domestication on the gut microbiota parallel those of human industrialization

    Aspen T Reese et al.
    Gut microbial signatures of domestication parallel those of industrialization, implicating shared ecological drivers.

    Long non-coding RNA GRASLND enhances chondrogenesis via suppression of the interferon type II signaling pathway

    Nguyen PT Huynh et al.
    Bioinformatic analysis of mesenchymal stem cell chondrogenesis identified a novel long noncoding RNA, GRASLND, which suppresses interferon signaling and enhances chondrogenesis.

    Alternative RNA splicing in the endothelium mediated in part by Rbfox2 regulates the arterial response to low flow

    Patrick A Murphy et al.
    Transcriptome analysis reveals an alternative splicing program induced in the arterial endothelium under low-flow inflammatory conditions by platelet and macrophage recruitment and dependent upon the RNA-binding splice factor Rbfox2.

    Interplay of disordered and ordered regions of a human small heat shock protein yields an ensemble of ‘quasi-ordered’ states

    Amanda F Clouser et al.
    Multiple iso-energetic-specific interactions involving the intrinsically-disordered region of sHSP HSPB1 define a quasi-ordered state, providing insights into inherited disease-associated mutations within the region that are thought to be disordered.

    Genomic mosaicism with increased amyloid precursor protein (APP) gene copy number in single neurons from sporadic Alzheimer's disease brains

    Diane M Bushman et al.
    Somatically derived genomic mosaicism in the form of increased DNA content and APP copy number in single neurons plausibly has a function in sporadic Alzheimer’s disease and points to functions for single-neuron gene copy number changes.
  1. Annual Report: 2019 in review

    We reflect on eLife’s efforts to transform research communication through improvements to science publishing, technology and research culture.
  2. Ben Barres Spotlight Awards: Applications open for 2020

    Applications are now open for this year’s Ben Barres Spotlight Awards, offering scientists from groups that are underrepresented in science up to $6,000 each to use to advance their research career.
