    Functional instability allows access to DNA in longer transcription Activator-Like effector (TALE) arrays

    Kathryn Geiger-Schuller et al.
    Single molecule DNA-binding trajectories and deterministic modeling analyses demonstrate a functional role for high energy partly folded states in Transcription Activator-Like Effectors that could improve future TALEN design.

    Genetic control of encoding strategy in a food-sensing neural circuit

    Giovanni Diana et al.
    Building on previous work (Entchev et al, 2015), computational analyses reveal that the choice between redundant versus synergistic encoding in a gene expression code for food abundance is controlled by cross-talk and auto-regulation among TGF-beta and serotonin pathways.
  2. Webinar Report: Sir Henry Dale Fellowships from the Royal Society and the Wellcome Trust.

    Intracellular Diffusion: How bacteria keep proteins moving

    Conrad W Mullineaux
    Bacteria contain large numbers of negatively-charged proteins to avoid the electrostatic interactions with ribosomes that would dramatically reduce protein diffusion.
