    Regulation of multispanning membrane protein topology via post-translational annealing

    Reid C Van Lehn et al.
    Coarse-grained modeling reveals a new mechanism for multispanning membrane protein topogenesis, in which misintegrated configurations of the proteins undergo post-translational annealing to reach final, fully integrated multispanning topologies.

    Biologically plausible learning in recurrent neural networks reproduces neural dynamics observed during cognitive tasks

    Thomas Miconi
    A biologically plausible learning rule allows recurrent neural networks to learn nontrivial tasks, using only sparse, delayed rewards, and the neural dynamics of trained networks exhibit complex dynamics observed in animal frontal cortices.

    Bacterial Evolution: The road to resistance

    Devon M Fitzgerald
    The way that bacteria grow—either floating in liquid or attached to a surface—affects their ability to evolve antimicrobial resistance and our ability to treat infections.

    Research Culture: Co-reviewing and ghostwriting by early-career researchers in the peer review of manuscripts

    Gary S McDowell et al.
    Early career researchers commonly peer review manuscripts on behalf of invited reviewers, often without receiving feedback or being named to the journal.
  2. Meta-Research: How significant are the public dimensions of faculty work in review, promotion and tenure documents?

    Juan P Alperin et al.
    An analysis of review, promotion and tenure documents from 129 US and Canadian universities suggests institutions could better fulfill their public missions by changing how they incentivize the public dimensions of faculty work.

    Meta-Research: Incidences of problematic cell lines are lower in papers that use RRIDs to identify cell lines

    Zeljana Babic et al.
    The use of Research Resource Identifiers (RRIDs) improves the proper use of cell lines in the biomedical literature.
