    Comparative genomics explains the evolutionary success of reef-forming corals

    Debashish Bhattacharya et al.
    The analysis of 20 coral genomic datasets provides unprecedented insights into what makes reef-building corals unique, including the evolution of novel gene families involved in biomineralization, signaling and stress responses that have led to their evolutionary success throughout the Phanerozoic Eon.

    Signaling cascades and the importance of moonlight in coral broadcast mass spawning

    Paulina Kaniewska et al.
    Artificial light causes changes to gene expression and cellular signaling cascades that coordinate mass spawning events for a species of coral from the Great Barrier Reef.

    Metabolic network percolation quantifies biosynthetic capabilities across the human oral microbiome

    David B Bernstein et al.
    A novel metabolic network analysis method enables large-scale computational predictions of biosynthetic capabilities across the human oral microbiome, revealing a unique cluster of fastidious microorganisms and potential metabolic interdependencies.

    Sterol transfer by atypical cholesterol-binding NPC2 proteins in coral-algal symbiosis

    Elizabeth Ann Hambleton et al.
    Diversification of a conserved cholesterol binder drives functional replacement of cholesterol with symbiont-produced sterols in corals living in nutrient-poor environments.

    Bleaching causes loss of disease resistance within the threatened coral species Acropora cervicornis

    Erinn M Muller et al.
    Standing genetic variation for disease resistance may be continuously lost during recurring warm water episodes because of widespread susceptibility of disease-resistant genotypes to bleaching and the independence between these two traits.

    α/β coiled coils

    Marcus D Hartmann et al.
    Simple insertions switch α-helical coiled coils into a novel fibrous protein fold that is periodically interspersed with short β-strands.

    Internal states drive nutrient homeostasis by modulating exploration-exploitation trade-off

    Verónica María Corrales-Carvajal et al.
    A quantitative video tracking analysis reveals that to gain the nutrients they need, flies change their decisions to exploit foods with different nutrient contents and explore the environment according to their internal amino acid and reproductive states.

    Efficient support of virus-like particle assembly by the HIV-1 packaging signal

    Mauricio Comas-Garcia et al.
    The packaging signal in HIV-1 genomic RNA supports in vitro particle assembly more efficiently than control RNAs, probably explaining its selective packaging during virus assembly in vivo.

    A versatile pipeline for the multi-scale digital reconstruction and quantitative analysis of 3D tissue architecture

    Hernán Morales-Navarrete et al.
    MotionTracking is freely available software that can generate multi-scale geometrical models of mammalian tissue and perform quantitative analysis of tissue architecture.

    Radially patterned cell behaviours during tube budding from an epithelium

    Yara E Sanchez-Corrales et al.
    Quantitative analysis in quasi-3D reveals apically driven cell behaviours that are closely coordinated across the tissue to allow ordered tube invagination through a focal point.
