    Essential metabolism for a minimal cell

    Marian Breuer et al.
    A near-complete flux balance analysis model of a minimal cell demonstrates the high essentiality of its metabolic genes, agrees well with experimental essentiality data and suggests some further gene removals.

    A transcription factor collective defines the HSN serotonergic neuron regulatory landscape

    Carla Lloret-Fernández et al.
    The collective action of six transcription factors selects and activates the regulatory regions of the HSN serotonergic neuron effector genes constituting a signature that can be used for the novo identification of HSN expressed genes.

    A component of the mir-17-92 polycistronic oncomir promotes oncogene-dependent apoptosis

    Virginie Olive et al.
    While intact mir-17-92 acts as a potent oncogene in a mouse model of Burkitt’s lymphoma, one of the six mir-17-92 components antagonizes its oncogenic cooperation with c-Myc by promoting c-Myc-induced apoptosis.
  1. Getting under the skin: an interview with Elena Oancea

    Elena Oancea is a tenure-track assistant professor with her own group at Brown University, where she explores the biology of skin pigmentation and the skin’s responses to light. When she is not a scientist, she is a mother but, as her children tell her, more often than not she is both.

    Improving a probabilistic cytoarchitectonic atlas of auditory cortex using a novel method for inter-individual alignment

    Omer Faruk Gulban et al.
    Inter-individual human brain alignment that uses macro-anatomical priors in addition to cortical curvature improves micro-anatomical correspondence between auditory areas.

    Ancient DNA reveals the lost domestication history of South American camelids in Northern Chile and across the Andes

    Paloma Diaz-Maroto et al.
    aDNA revealed a model of domestication where an ancient guanaco population no longer exists, the loss of the ancient vicuña genetic variation in the modern populations, and frequently interbreeding practices.

    A Drosophila screen identifies NKCC1 as a modifier of NGLY1 deficiency

    Dana M Talsness et al.
    An ion transporter is hyperglycosylated and 50% less functional in NGLY1-deficient cells, potentially explaining several symptoms of NGLY1 deficiency such as lack of sweat and tears.

    Temporal selectivity declines in the aging human auditory cortex

    Julia Erb et al.
    The aged human auditory cortex shows preserved tonotopy, but temporal modulations are represented with a markedly broader tuning, highlighting decreased temporal selectivity as a hallmark of the aging auditory cortex.

    Efficient sampling and noisy decisions

    Joseph A Heng et al.
    An efficient coding theory for higher-level cognitive processes reveals that humans efficiently adapt to contextual distributions by economizing on environmental prior information.
