    The Natural History of Model Organisms: Insights into the evolution of social systems and species from baboon studies

    Julia Fischer et al.
    Wild baboons are an excellent model to study complex evolutionary processes such as speciation and hybridization, as well as the links between sociality, longevity and reproductive success.

    The genetic architecture of gene expression levels in wild baboons

    Jenny Tung et al.
    RNA sequencing of individuals within a wild baboon population reveals extensive power to detect functional regulatory variation, and suggests that the set of genes affected by such variation may be conserved across species.

    Habitat and social factors shape individual decisions and emergent group structure during baboon collective movement

    Ariana Strandburg-Peshkin et al.
    For baboons on the move, habitat features across multiple spatial scales combine with social interactions to impact the movements of individuals, ultimately shaping the structure of the whole group.

    Sequential phenotypic constraints on social information use in wild baboons

    Alecia J Carter et al.
    Social information is a process encompassing information acquisition, application and exploitation that is constrained by an individual’s social, behavioural and demographic phenotype.

    Intergenerational effects of early adversity on survival in wild baboons

    Matthew N Zipple et al.
    In wild baboons, a female's adverse early experiences can influence her offspring's survival years after the original adversity was experienced.

    Purinergic signaling in cochlear supporting cells reduces hair cell excitability by increasing the extracellular space

    Travis A Babola et al.
    Supporting cells in the cochlea change their shape in response to purinergic receptor activation, which influences hair cell excitability by altering potassium redistribution in the extracellular space.

    Probing protein flexibility reveals a mechanism for selective promiscuity

    Nicolas A Pabon, Carlos J Camacho
    Conserved contacts on cognate ligands trigger an induced fit pathway that confers selective promiscuity to PD-1, a flexible regulatory protein and promising anticancer target.

    Social networks predict gut microbiome composition in wild baboons

    Jenny Tung et al.
    Social interactions can have a direct effect on the composition of the gut microbiome in wild primates.

    Genome Organization: Painting chromosomes in the nucleus

    Cori K Cahoon, Diana E Libuda
    A multiplexed approach to DNA FISH experiments has been used to visualize the three-dimensional organization of chromosomes and specific chromosomal regions in C. elegans..
