    Circular synthesized CRISPR/Cas gRNAs for functional interrogations in the coding and noncoding genome

    Martin Wegner et al.
    Cloning-free 3Cs technology is developed for the generation of sequence-bias-free covalently closed circular synthesized (3Cs) CRISPR/Cas gRNA libraries that can interrogate the coding and noncoding human genome.

    Plasmodium Niemann-Pick type C1-related protein is a druggable target required for parasite membrane homeostasis

    Eva S Istvan et al.
    The malaria parasite Niemann-Pick Type C1-related protein is an important new antimalarial target.

    Cryo-EM structures and functional characterization of the murine lipid scramblase TMEM16F

    Carolina Alvadia et al.
    While activated by a common mechanism, both functions in TMEM16F - lipid scrambling and ion conduction - are likely mediated by alternate protein conformations that are at equilibrium in the ligand-bound state.

    Replication Study: The microRNA miR-34a inhibits prostate cancer stem cells and metastasis by directly repressing CD44

    Xuefei Yan et al.
    Editors' Summary: This Replication Study has reproduced important parts of the original paper, but it also contains results that are not consistent with some parts of the original paper.

    Schnyder corneal dystrophy-associated UBIAD1 inhibits ER-associated degradation of HMG CoA reductase in mice

    Youngah Jo et al.
    UBIAD1 mediates a unique geranylgeranyl pyrophosphate-sensing mechanism that when disrupted, inhibits degradation of HMG CoA reductase and triggers overproduction of corneal cholesterol that characterizes the eye disease Schnyder Corneal Dystrophy.

    Genetic and environmental perturbations lead to regulatory decoherence

    Amanda Lea et al.
    Infection and metabolic syndrome lead to a loss of molecular regulation, and changes in molecular correlations are under genetic control as revealed by the presence of correlation quantitative trait loci.

    Discovering and deciphering relationships across disparate data modalities

    Joshua T Vogelstein et al.
    Multiscale Graph Correlation, an interpretable hypothesis test with strong theoretical guarantees for discerning relationships in complex data, requires about half the sample size as other methods, whilst maintaining computational tractability.
  2. Levelling Up: Reproducibility for Everyone

    A project supported by eLife Ambassadors and a Mozilla Mini Grant is increasing its capacity to train researchers in reproducible research practices.
