  1. Research Culture: Career choices of underrepresented and female postdocs in the biomedical sciences

    W Marcus Lambert et al.
    Mentorship, financial security and a positive sense of self-worth increase the likelihood that underrepresented minority and female postdocs will pursue a career in academia.

    Meta-Research: Task specialization across research careers

    Nicolas Robinson-Garcia et al.
    An analysis of author contribution statements in a large number of published papers reveals biases in the career trajectories of scientists.

    A universal vector concept for a direct genotyping of transgenic organisms and a systematic creation of homozygous lines

    Frederic Strobl et al.
    In transgenesis assays involving diploid model organisms, two clearly distinguishable transformation markers embedded in interweaved, but incompatible Lox site pairs allow the systematic creation of homozygous transgenic lines and minimize the number of wasted animals.
  2. Cutting Edge: Science hackathons for developing interdisciplinary research and collaborations

    Derek Groen, Ben Calderhead
    Science hackathons can help academics, particularly those in the early stage of their careers, to build collaborations and write research proposals.
  3. Living Science: A good life

    Eve Marder
    Following a career in science involves long hours and hard work, but as Eve Marder explains in the first of a series of columns, it can also be extremely rewarding.
  4. Living Science: Lost voices

    Eve Marder
    When a scientist dies too early in their career we miss them as a colleague and as a person and, as Eve Marder explains, we also lose the science they would have done.

    Equity, Diversity and Inclusion: Introducing the MAVEN Leadership Training Initiative to diversify the scientific workforce

    Y Claire Wang et al.
    The MAVEN Initiative has been designed to encourage mid-career women scientists, particularly women of color, to move into leadership positions in science.

    Precise let-7 expression levels balance organ regeneration against tumor suppression

    Linwei Wu et al.
    Mouse genetic studies reveal that let-7 performs potent tumor suppressive roles, but at the expense of regeneration and tissue homeostasis in the liver, findings with unanticipated therapeutic implications.
  5. Research: Decoupling of the minority PhD talent pool and assistant professor hiring in medical school basic science departments in the US

    Kenneth D Gibbs Jr et al.
    A systems-level analysis of the biomedical workforce in the US shows that current strategies to enhance faculty diversity are unlikely to have a significant impact, and that there is a need to increase the number of PhDs from underrepresented minority backgrounds who move on to postdoctoral positions.

    Quantitative proteomics reveal proteins enriched in tubular endoplasmic reticulum of Saccharomyces cerevisiae

    Xinbo Wang et al.
    Immunoisolation combined with quantitative proteomics identifies 79 proteins enriched in the tubular endoplasmic reticulum and provides useful tool for analyzing this organelle's functions.
