    Evolution of irreversible somatic differentiation

    Yuanxiao Gao et al.
    Irreversible differentiation into somatic cells is evolutionarily optimal if changing cell phenotype is costly, a few somatic cells already improve the organism's performance, and the organism is large enough.

    Bayesian inference of population prevalence

    Robin AA Ince et al.
    Bayesian estimation of the proportion of the population that would show an effect in an experiment provides a broadly applicable alternative to standard null hypothesis tests on the population mean with several advantages.

    Y chromosome functions in mammalian spermatogenesis

    Jeremie Subrini, James Turner
    The mammalian Y chromosome has become specialised for male fertility, but exact functions of individual Y genes remain poorly understood, a knowledge gap that new approaches can bridge.

    Learning to stand with unexpected sensorimotor delays

    Brandon G Rasman et al.
    The nervous system can learn to control standing balance with added sensorimotor delays by causally linking delayed whole-body sensory feedback, initially deemed as unexpected, to self-generated balance motor commands.

    The whale shark genome reveals patterns of vertebrate gene family evolution

    Milton Tan et al.
    The new whale shark genome assembly represents the best gapless chondrichthyan genome assembly yet, and comparative genomic analyses provide insights into the evolution of vertebrate genome origins, immunity, and gigantism.

    Neural mechanisms of modulations of empathy and altruism by beliefs of others’ pain

    Taoyu Wu, Shihui Han
    Beliefs of others’ pain provide a cognitive basis of human empathy and altruism by modulating empathic brain activity.

    Natural variation in the consequences of gene overexpression and its implications for evolutionary trajectories

    DeElegant Robinson et al.
    The genetic background of Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast strains influences responses to gene overexpression.

    An hourglass circuit motif transforms a motor program via subcellularly localized muscle calcium signaling and contraction

    Steven R Sando et al.
    By driving the localized contraction of subcellular muscle regions, a single motor neuron reverses the flow of material in the Caenorhabditis elegans pharynx, a neuromuscular pump, converting feeding into spitting.

    Transcriptomics-informed large-scale cortical model captures topography of pharmacological neuroimaging effects of LSD

    Joshua B Burt et al.
    Computational models of large-scale cortical dynamics, integrating gene expression mapping to pattern pharmacological modulation across cortex, capture inter-areal topographies of functional connectivity alterations induced by lysergic acid diethylamide, providing a framework for simulating effects of pharmacology in the human brain.

    A chimeric nuclease substitutes a phage CRISPR-Cas system to provide sequence-specific immunity against subviral parasites

    Zachary K Barth et al.
    Horizontal transfer of a sequence-specific DNA-binding domain allows a virus to destroy its subviral parasite and overcome parasite-mediated restriction.
