    Longitudinal trajectories, correlations and mortality associations of nine biological ages across 20-years follow-up

    Xia Li et al.
    Biological ages have the potential to provide aging-related information beyond chronological age and can be predictive of mortality independently of both chronological age and different types of biological ages.

    Mortality: The challenges of estimating biological age

    Alexey Moskalev
    A comparison of nine different approaches over a period of 20 years reveals the most promising indicators for biological age.

    High social status males experience accelerated epigenetic aging in wild baboons

    Jordan A Anderson et al.
    Among the factors that predict fitness in wild baboons, dominance rank in males, but not in females, is the best predictor of epigenetic aging.

    A whole lifespan mouse multi-tissue DNA methylation clock

    Margarita V Meer et al.
    A robust mouse multi-tissue age predictor is presented that can be used to assess the DNA methylation age of mouse tissues and test the effects of longevity interventions.

    Physical limits to magnetogenetics

    Markus Meister
    Recent reports on the ability of biological molecules to sense magnetic fields are found to be inconsistent with basic physical principles.

    The effect of host community functional traits on plant disease risk varies along an elevational gradient

    Fletcher W Halliday et al.
    Environmental gradients can modify a fundamental relationship between host community structure and disease, with implications for predicting disease risk in a changing world.

    Human genetic analyses of organelles highlight the nucleus in age-related trait heritability

    Rahul Gupta et al.
    Although cellular organelles show a functional deterioration in aging, genetic loci associated with common age-associated disease instead nominate nuclear transcription factors across several age-related diseases.

    A two-lane mechanism for selective biological ammonium transport

    Gordon Williamson et al.
    A new cellular transport mechanism splits the substrate and separately translocates its fragments to achieve selectivity.

    A biological switching valve evolved in the female of a sex-role reversed cave insect to receive multiple seminal packages

    Kazunori Yoshizawa et al.
    The discovery of a biological switching valve provides an example of a mechanism that evolved in nature long before its invention by man and could inspire alternative valve technologies.

    Identifying molecular features that are associated with biological function of intrinsically disordered protein regions

    Taraneh Zarin et al.
    A statistical model systematically associates functions of intrinsically disordered regions with sequence-distributed molecular features such as charge, residue composition, or repeat content.
