    Flowering time and seed dormancy control use external coincidence to generate life history strategy

    Vicki Springthorpe, Steven Penfield
    Models of plant behaviour show that flowering early in a warming world is an adaptive strategy to insulate progeny seed behaviour from the affects of climate change.

    Potential herd protection against Plasmodium falciparum infections conferred by mass antimalarial drug administrations

    Daniel M Parker et al.
    Given sufficient population adherence, mass drug administration for falciparum malaria can provide group level benefits, also known as ‘herd effects’.

    Auxin production in the endosperm drives seed coat development in Arabidopsis

    Duarte D Figueiredo et al.
    Auxin is produced in the endosperm after fertilization and drives the development of the seed coat in Arabidopsis.

    CRISPR-based herd immunity can limit phage epidemics in bacterial populations

    Pavel Payne et al.
    Bacteria can exhibit herd immunity protection against phages, which may play a significant role in their ecology and evolution.

    Non-canonical RNA-directed DNA methylation participates in maternal and environmental control of seed dormancy

    Mayumi Iwasaki et al.
    Seed-specific and cold-induced DNA methylation is deposited in the seed progeny to form a transient and transgenerational memory of past environmental conditions to optimize seed germination timing.

    Multiple alleles at a single locus control seed dormancy in Swedish Arabidopsis

    Envel Kerdaffrec et al.
    Natural variation for an adaptively important life history trait is largely due to variation at a single, major-effect locus with multiple alleles, demonstrating that not all complex traits are massively polygenic.

    Ser/Thr kinase Trc controls neurite outgrowth in Drosophila by modulating microtubule-microtubule sliding

    Rosalind Norkett et al.
    Microtubule-microtubule sliding and neurite outgrowth in Drosophila is controlled by a Ser/Thr kinase Tricornered via phosphorylation of a 'mitotic' motor protein Pavarotti.

    The SERM/SERD bazedoxifene disrupts ESR1 helix 12 to overcome acquired hormone resistance in breast cancer cells

    Sean W Fanning et al.
    Bazedoxifene's SERD activities enable it to resist the impact of activating ESR1 mutations in breast cancer.

    The plant pathogen Pseudomonas aeruginosa triggers a DELLA-dependent seed germination arrest in Arabidopsis

    Hicham Chahtane et al.
    Arabidopsis seed germination can be repressed by a Pseudomonas factor.

    Dormancy-specific imprinting underlies maternal inheritance of seed dormancy in Arabidopsis thaliana

    Urszula Piskurewicz et al.
    A genomic imprinting program in the endosperm of Arabidopsis mature seeds is dynamically adjusted according to seed dormancy levels and regulates germination.
