  1. Point of View: Improving on legacy conferences by moving online

    Titipat Achakulvisut et al.
    Neuromatch was an online conference that attracted around 3000 participants and offered most of the benefits of traditional conferences.
  2. Research Culture: A survey of travel behaviour among scientists in Germany and the potential for change

    Verena Haage
    A survey of scientists working in Germany reveals that most already travel to conferences in a sustainable manner and would be willing to make further changes to protect the environment.
  3. Research Culture: Changing how we evaluate research is difficult, but not impossible

    Anna Hatch, Stephen Curry
    The DORA initiative offers practical guidance on improving the assessment of research by universities, research institutions, and funders.
  4. Research Culture: Setting the right tone

    Tanita Casci, Elizabeth Adams
    Improving the research culture of an institution may lead to a fairer, more rewarding and successful environment, but how do you start making changes?

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: The secret lives of Drosophila flies

    Therese Ann Markow
    After decades of intensive research, D. melanogaster and its relatives could provide important tools for investigating future biological questions about human health and environmental change, but only if we better understand their natural history.
    1. Ecology

    Climate change and intensive land use reduce soil animal biomass via dissimilar pathways

    Rui Yin et al.
    Climate change and land-use intensification have negative but largely independent effects on soil animal biomass.

    A deleterious gene-by-environment interaction imposed by calcium channel blockers in Marfan syndrome

    Jefferson J Doyle et al.
    Calcium channel blockers accelerate aortic aneurysm and cause premature aortic rupture in a mouse model of Marfan syndrome through protein kinase C-mediated activation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase.

    Mapping transiently formed and sparsely populated conformations on a complex energy landscape

    Yong Wang et al.
    Molecular simulations can capture key aspects of the conformational exchange in a protein.
    1. Neuroscience

    Mechanisms of hyperexcitability in Alzheimer’s disease hiPSC-derived neurons and cerebral organoids vs isogenic controls

    Swagata Ghatak et al.
    Increased excitation and decreased inhibition associated with abnormal neuronal morphology, aberrant ion channel properties, and synaptic dysfunction contribute to hyperexcitability in Alzheimer’s disease hiPSC-derived neuronal cultures and cerebral organoids.
    1. Developmental Biology

    Altered paracrine signaling from the injured knee joint impairs postnatal long bone growth

    Alberto Roselló-Díez et al.
    Genetic analyses in mice reveal a communication system between the knee joint and the developing bones that could be explored in studies addressing evolutionary changes in body proportions and in future therapies for growth disorders.
