    Episode 13: July 2014

    In this episode we hear about using photographs to diagnose rare genetic disorders, an unexpected benefit of exercise, hybridizing fish species, Rett syndrome, and using gene drives to eradicate disease.

    An integrative genomic analysis of the Longshanks selection experiment for longer limbs in mice

    João PL Castro et al.
    Genome sequencing of mice selected for longer limbs reveals that rapid selection response is due to both discrete loci and polygenic adaptation.

    Migration confers winter survival benefits in a partially migratory songbird

    Daniel Zúñiga et al.
    Testing of fitness-related benefits in migratory population of European blackbirds offers confirming predictions of theoretical models on the evolution and maintenance of migration.
    1. Neuroscience

    Visual projection neurons in the Drosophila lobula link feature detection to distinct behavioral programs

    Ming Wu et al.
    Neurons called lobula columnar cells help fruit flies respond appropriately to specific visual cues, such as those signaling an approaching predator.

    Vocalization–whisking coordination and multisensory integration of social signals in rat auditory cortex

    Rajnish P Rao et al.
    Snout-to-snout contact modulates the response of rat auditory cortex to calls from other animals, indicating that the multisensory nature of social interaction is directly represented in the rat brain.

    Research: Bias in the reporting of sex and age in biomedical research on mouse models

    Oscar Flórez-Vargas et al.
    A text-mining study suggests that about half of the papers reporting the results of experiments on mice do not report the sex and age of the mice.
  3. Rebooting reproducibility: From re-execution to replication

    Critical questions for building and employing more useful tools for reproducible research.
  4. Introducing eLife’s first computationally reproducible article

    Blending the traditional manuscript with live code, data and interactive figures, we showcase a new way for researchers to tell their full story.
  5. Announcing the next phase of Executable Research Articles

    eLife and Stencila renew their partnership to make Executable Research Articles accessible to even more researchers and publishers.
