    Nuclear envelope protein MAN1 regulates clock through BMAL1

    Shu-Ting Lin et al.
    A protein within the nuclear membrane, MAN1, controls the expression of the circadian clock gene, BMAL1, in an example of cross-talk between two major gene regulatory pathways.

    Experimental evaluation of the importance of colonization history in early-life gut microbiota assembly

    Inés Martínez et al.
    Experiments in ex-germ-free mice establish a measurable effect of colonization history on gut microbiota assembly, illuminating a potential cause for the high levels of unexplained individuality in host-associated microbial communities.

    CK1/Doubletime activity delays transcription activation in the circadian clock

    Deniz Top et al.
    Doubletime kinase stabilizes the PER/TIM complex and regulates its transcriptional inhibition function to delay circadian transcriptional activity, helping sustain 24-hour periodicity in the circadian clock.

    Mapping replication dynamics in Trypanosoma brucei reveals a link with telomere transcription and antigenic variation

    Rebecca Devlin et al.
    Mapping DNA replication timing, allied to genetic analysis of a RecQ repair helicase, reveals that antigenic variation in the African trypanosome may be initiated by locus-specific, replication-derived sequence instability.

    Recurring patterns in bacterioplankton dynamics during coastal spring algae blooms

    Hanno Teeling et al.
    Dynamic successive blooms of clades of planktonic marine bacteria that can be observed during blooms of marine algae follow discernible patterns, part of which might be explained by substrate-induced forcing.
