    The Ret receptor regulates sensory neuron dendrite growth and integrin mediated adhesion

    Peter Soba et al.
    A cell surface receptor called Ret enables neurons to establish and maintain the organized arrays of dendrites that support communication between neurons.

    Mapping the dynamics of force transduction at cell–cell junctions of epithelial clusters

    Mei Rosa Ng et al.
    The integrated quantification of spontaneous dynamic cell-cell force transmissions at both multi-cellular and subcellular scales enables spatiotemporal correlations of stress distribution with biomolecules in small cell clusters.

    Meta-Research: Releasing a preprint is associated with more attention and citations for the peer-reviewed article

    Darwin Y Fu, Jacob J Hughey
    An analysis of more than 70,000 journal articles, including 5405 that were first released as a preprint on bioRxiv, shows that articles with a preprint received 49% more attention and 36% more citations than articles without one.

  1. Science Policy: Reforming research assessment

    Randy Schekman, Mark Patterson
    It is time for the research community to rethink how the outputs of scientific research are evaluated and, as the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment makes clear, this should involve replacing the journal impact factor with a broad range of more meaningful approaches.

  2. Research: Sci-Hub provides access to nearly all scholarly literature

    Daniel S Himmelstein et al.
    The availability of almost all articles from toll access journals in the Sci-Hub repository will disrupt scholarly publishing towards more open models.
  3. Point of View: Unbridle biomedical research from the laboratory cage

    Garet P Lahvis
    Recent advances in technology now make it possible to carry out biomedical research on animals living in the wild, or captive animals living in naturalistic conditions.
