    Characterisation of the opposing effects of G6PD deficiency on cerebral malaria and severe malarial anaemia

    Geraldine M Clarke et al.
    Increasing levels of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency are associated with decreasing risk of cerebral malaria, but with increased risk of severe malarial anaemia.

    Two single-point mutations shift the ligand selectivity of a pheromone receptor between two closely related moth species

    Ke Yang et al.
    Differing from its ortholog in Helicoverpa armigera, pheromone receptor HassOr14b is tuned to the major sex pheromone component in H. assulta, and two amino acids in the intracellular domain determine their ligand selectivity.
  1. Cutting Edge: Using mobile sequencers in an academic classroom

    Sophie Zaaijer et al.
    A university genomics class provides detailed examples of how to design and execute Oxford Nanopore MinION hackathons as part of an academic curriculum.
  2. Equity, Diversity and Inclusion: Alternative strategies for closing the award gap between white and minority ethnic students

    Louise Cramer
    An analysis of the grades awarded to cell biology students at University College London suggests that exams may contribute more to the award gap than coursework in this subject.

    MicroRNAs mediate precise control of spinal interneuron populations to exert delicate sensory-to-motor outputs

    Shih-Hsin Chang et al.
    The miR-34/449 family is abundantly expressed in the central nervous system, and fine-tunes optimal numbers of spinal interneurons to ensure sensory-motor circuit outputs.

    Modelling primaquine-induced haemolysis in G6PD deficiency

    James Watson et al.
    In silico modelling of all available data shows that a twenty-day ascending-dose primaquine regimen could be safe to administer to G6PD deficient patients for the radical cure of vivax malaria.
  3. Meta-Research: How significant are the public dimensions of faculty work in review, promotion and tenure documents?

    Juan P Alperin et al.
    An analysis of review, promotion and tenure documents from 129 US and Canadian universities suggests institutions could better fulfill their public missions by changing how they incentivize the public dimensions of faculty work.
  4. Meta-Research: Gender variations in citation distributions in medicine are very small and due to self-citation and journal prestige

    Jens Peter Andersen et al.
    In studies of gender disparities in academia, increased focus is required on within-group variability and between-group overlap of distributions when interpreting and reporting results.
  5. Research Culture: A survey-based analysis of the academic job market

    Jason D Fernandes et al.
    A survey of over 300 applicants for faculty positions reveals that there are many paths to securing a job offer.
