    The glyoxylate shunt is essential for desiccation tolerance in C. elegans and budding yeast

    Cihan Erkut et al.
    Roundworms and yeast can survive extreme desiccation only by switching their metabolism into a gluconeogenic mode and producing very high amounts of trehalose via the glyoxylate shunt.

    Synergy between the small intrinsically disordered protein Hsp12 and trehalose sustain viability after severe desiccation

    Skylar Xantus Kim et al.
    Two small, energy independent stress effectors are able to counteract all of the major insults imposed by severe water loss.

    The MAP kinase pathway coordinates crossover designation with disassembly of synaptonemal complex proteins during meiosis

    Saravanapriah Nadarajan et al.
    Coordination between crossover designation and synaptonemal complex disassembly is executed via a conserved MAP kinase pathway and is critical for accurate chromosome segregation during meiosis.

    Humidity response depends on the small soluble protein Obp59a in Drosophila

    Jennifer S Sun et al.
    Hygroreception, a poorly understood process critical to insect survival, depends on a small protein in the antenna of the fruit fly that was previously thought to transport odorants.

    Bacterial survival in microscopic surface wetness

    Maor Grinberg et al.
    A new intricate reciprocity between microbiology and physics results in collective protection from desiccation through differential formation of stable microdroplets around bacterial aggregates on surfaces drying under moderate humidity.

    The genome and phenome of the green alga Chloroidium sp. UTEX 3007 reveal adaptive traits for desert acclimatization

    David R Nelson et al.
    Euryhaline green algae utilise intracellular osmoprotectant modulation and specialised redox enzyme networks to successfully inhabit a desert coastline.

    A new genus of horse from Pleistocene North America

    Peter D Heintzman et al.
    The extinct stilt-legged equids of North America are not related to Asiatic asses or horses, but instead represent a distinct lineage outside of living equid diversity that became extinct in the terminal Pleistocene.

    Functional heterogeneity within the rodent lateral orbitofrontal cortex dissociates outcome devaluation and reversal learning deficits

    Marios C Panayi, Simon Killcross
    The rodent orbitofrontal cortex makes functionally distinct contributions to flexible behavioural control, even within a single putative orbitofrontal subregion, which has important implications for establishing homology between rodent and primate orbitofrontal cortex.

    Polo-like kinase-dependent phosphorylation of the synaptonemal complex protein SYP-4 regulates double-strand break formation through a negative feedback loop.

    Saravanapriah Nadarajan et al.
    PLK-1/2-mediated SYP-4 phosphorylation is dependent on crossover precursor formation, triggering a switch in the dynamic state of the synaptonemal complex that reduces the formation of further double-strand breaks at late meiotic prophase.

    Ionotropic Receptor-dependent moist and dry cells control hygrosensation in Drosophila

    Zachary A Knecht et al.
    The neurons and receptors mediating moist air detection in Drosophila are identified, revealing that moist and dry air detection depend on overlapping Ionotropic Receptors and that these pathways are both critical for hygrosensation.
