    Shared behavioral mechanisms underlie C. elegans aggregation and swarming

    Siyu Serena Ding et al.
    Two seemingly distinct behaviors in social C. elegans worms, namely aggregating into groups and swarming over food, are driven by the same underlying mechanisms.

    A novel class of inferior colliculus principal neurons labeled in vasoactive intestinal peptide-Cre mice

    David Goyer et al.
    VIP neurons are a novel class of inferior colliculus stellate neurons that project to long-range auditory and non-auditory targets and integrate inputs from the auditory brainstem and contralateral IC.

    Independent amylase gene copy number bursts correlate with dietary preferences in mammals

    Petar Pajic et al.
    Comprehensive analyses of amylase duplications and salivary activity across mammals underscore the importance of recurrent copy number variation as a flexible and rapid evolutionary mechanism.

    The Hox transcription factor Ubx stabilizes lineage commitment by suppressing cellular plasticity in Drosophila

    Katrin Domsch et al.
    The Hox transcription factor Ultrabithorax (Ubx) represses alternative gene programs during lineage development by lineage-specific Polycomb protein complex retention at Ubx-targeted chromatin sites.

    Oligodendrocytes regulate presynaptic properties and neurotransmission through BDNF signaling in the mouse brainstem

    Miae Jang et al.
    Oligodendrocytes are actively engaged in the precise control of synaptic functions in the CNS through activity-dependent BDNF signaling.

    Opto-magnetic capture of individual cells based on visual phenotypes

    Loïc Binan et al.
    Single cells from a large heterogeneous population can be identified, isolated and clonally expanded using commonly available microscopy equipment and simple reagents, based solely on visual characteristics.

    Mapping the transcriptional diversity of genetically and anatomically defined cell populations in the mouse brain

    Ken Sugino et al.
    A transcriptome dataset of nearly 200 genetically identified mouse neuronal cell types revealed that short low-noise homeobox transcription factors and long neuronal effector genes best distinguish neuronal cell types.

    Oscillatory hyperactivity and hyperconnectivity in young APOE-ɛ4 carriers and hypoconnectivity in Alzheimer’s disease

    Loes Koelewijn et al.
    Electrophysiology pinpoints brain function abnormalities in young people genetically at risk of developing Alzheimer's disease much later in life, supporting theories of initial hyperconnectivity driving eventual profound disconnection.
  1. Workforce Diversity: Let’s talk about race

    A workshop convened by the Medical Research Council gave PhD students the opportunity to discuss how research careers could be made more inclusive for black, Asian and minority ethnic individuals.

    The RNA helicase UPF1 associates with mRNAs co-transcriptionally and is required for the release of mRNAs from gene loci

    Anand K Singh et al.
    UPF1 associates with nascent transcripts and plays a broad role in nuclear processes of gene expression.
