    anTraX, a software package for high-throughput video tracking of color-tagged insects

    Asaf Gal et al.
    anTraX is an algorithm and software package that facilitates automated analyses of insect social behavior in species and experimental settings that are not accessible with currently existing technology.

    Tight Junction Protein 1a regulates pigment cell organisation during zebrafish colour patterning

    Andrey Fadeev et al.
    The changes in shape of iridophores that underlie adult colour pattern formation in zebrafish depend on the levels of Tight Junction Protein 1a in these cells.

    Mouse color and wavelength-specific luminance contrast sensitivity are non-uniform across visual space

    Daniel J Denman et al.
    Mice can detect changes in hue independent of luminance, with differing sensitivity to hue and luminance in different parts of visual space.

    Loss of MGA repression mediated by an atypical polycomb complex promotes tumor progression and invasiveness

    Haritha Mathsyaraja et al.
    The MYC transcription factor network member MGA is a subunit of a non-canonical Polycomb complex, which, when inactivated, accelerates tumorigenesis in mouse models of cancer and proliferation in colon organoids.

    Structural color in Junonia butterflies evolves by tuning scale lamina thickness

    Rachel C Thayer et al.
    Artificial selection on wing color and CRISPR/Cas9 knockout of the optix gene both alter scale lamina thickness in Junonia coenia, which shifts structural color wavelength and mimics macroevolutionary butterfly diversity.

    Cortex cis-regulatory switches establish scale colour identity and pattern diversity in Heliconius

    Luca Livraghi et al.
    The evolution of a butterfly mimetic phenotype is driven by modular cis-regulstory switches controlling a ‘hotspot’ gene.

    Ancestral resurrection reveals evolutionary mechanisms of kinase plasticity

    Conor J Howard et al.
    Reconstructing ancestral enzymes has revealed that a switch in kinase substrate preference evolved via an expanded specificity intermediate that is tolerated in vivo, thus providing a path for kinase diversification.

    Sam68/KHDRBS1-dependent NF-κB activation confers radioprotection to the colon epithelium in γ-irradiated mice

    Kai Fu et al.
    Building on previous work (Fu et al., 2016), we demonstrate the critical role of Sam68 in orchestrating genotoxic stress-initiated NF-κB signaling in the colon and the pathophysiological relevance of Sam68-dependent NF-κB activation in colonic cell survival/recovery from extrinsic DNA damage.

    Natural variation in stochastic photoreceptor specification and color preference in Drosophila

    Caitlin Anderson et al.
    Binding site affinity and transcription factor levels are finely tuned in nature to regulate stochastic expression, setting the ratio of alternative photoreceptor fates and determining color preference.

    Visual mode switching learned through repeated adaptation to color

    Yanjun Li et al.
    The visual system can learn to rapidly adjust itself through experience, switching modes to stabilize vision perception and optimize perceptual processes.
