    Adaptation of olfactory receptor abundances for efficient coding

    Tiberiu Teşileanu et al.
    A model of efficient coding by olfactory neurons explains context-dependence observed in the effect of perturbations to the olfactory environment.

    Multifactorial processes underlie parallel opsin loss in neotropical bats

    Alexa Sadier et al.
    Parallel losses of short-wave light sensitivity in diverse bats occurred through independent changes at multiple steps in the conversion of genotype into functional phenotype, including pre-, during, and post-transcription.

    Antimicrobial peptide expression in a wild tobacco plant reveals the limits of host-microbe-manipulations in the field

    Arne Weinhold et al.
    The attempt to manipulate a microbiome in planta to study the ecological consequences under field conditions leaves plants and their microbes surprisingly unimpressed.

    Genetic dissection of the Transcription Factor code controlling serial specification of muscle identities in Drosophila

    Laurence Dubois et al.
    Lineage-specific regulatory loops involving evolutionarily conserved myogenic Transcription Factors control muscle identity specification in Drosophila.

    An ancient germ cell-specific RNA-binding protein protects the germline from cryptic splice site poisoning

    Ingrid Ehrmann et al.
    Cell division by meiosis during sperm production depends on expression of an RNA-binding protein that prevents abnormal RNA-processing pathways.

    Trisomy 21 consistently activates the interferon response

    Kelly D Sullivan et al.
    Hyperactive interferon signaling is a hallmark of trisomy 21 and may contribute to many of the comorbidities associated with Down syndrome.

    'Palaeoshellomics’ reveals the use of freshwater mother-of-pearl in prehistory

    Jorune Sakalauskaite et al.
    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.

    A sleep state in Drosophila larvae required for neural stem cell proliferation

    Milan Szuperak et al.
    A role for sleep in developmental neurogenesis is revealed using a new system for studying sleep during nascent periods.

    Combined transcriptome and proteome profiling reveals specific molecular brain signatures for sex, maturation and circalunar clock phase

    Sven Schenk et al.
    A molecular profiling approach to quantify transcripts and proteins from identical samples allows study of molecular effects of maturation, sexual differentiation and the endogenous circalunar clock in a marine worm.

    C. elegans avoids toxin-producing Streptomyces using a seven transmembrane domain chemosensory receptor

    Alan Tran et al.
    Caenorhabditis elegans require a GPCR to recognize and rapidly escape from toxin-producing Streptomyces at their head or tail.
