A screen targeting RNA-associated proteins reveals that PSI regulates timeless alternative splicing and thus controls the period of Drosophila circadian behavior and its phase under temperature cycles.
Through novel, cell-specific CRISPR tools to disrupt molecular clock genes, it was revealed that circadian rhythms are coordinated through a network, rather than by the clock of 'master regulatory' neurons.
An in-depth metagenomic analysis of possibly the most abundant and widespread microbial lineage in the surface ocean teases apart evolutionary processes that maintain its genomic heterogeneity and biogeography.
A neuroanatomical analysis of Rimicaris exoculata provides insights into these animal’s brain architecture to illustrate possible adaptations to the hydrothermal vent habitat with its extreme physicochemical conditions.
A fish-derived bile salt was shown to act as interspecific infochemical, inducing the widespread predator avoidance behavior diel vertical migration at picomolar concentrations in freshwater zooplankton of the genus Daphnia.
Ancient proteomes from tiny shell ornaments were successfully characterised for the first time, showing the unexpected use of mother-of-pearl from local riverine molluscs in both coastal and inland prehistoric sites.
