    Noncoding RNA-nucleated heterochromatin spreading is intrinsically labile and requires accessory elements for epigenetic stability

    R A Greenstein et al.
    Heterochromatin spreading in fission yeast predominantly produces intergenerationally unstable outcomes, requiring an accessory element that represses histone turnover.

    Reconstruction of natural images from responses of primate retinal ganglion cells

    Nora Brackbill et al.
    The visual message conveyed by retinal neurons to the brain when signaling natural scenes resembles the individual receptive fields only when viewed in context of the neuronal population.

    Correcting for physical distortions in visual stimuli improves reproducibility in zebrafish neuroscience

    Timothy W Dunn, James E Fitzgerald
    Computational analyses quantitatively account for optical refraction at air-water interfaces to enable visual neuroscientists to present distortion-free stimuli to underwater animals.

    Herpes simplex viral nucleoprotein creates a competitive transcriptional environment facilitating robust viral transcription and host shut off

    Sarah E Dremel, Neal A DeLuca
    Herpes simplex ICP4 preferentially binds to and delineates the viral genome, ultimately resulting in robust viral transcription at the expense of the host.

    Surface color and predictability determine contextual modulation of V1 firing and gamma oscillations

    Alina Peter et al.
    Colored surfaces induce strong gamma-synchronization yet sparse firing in V1 when receptive field inputs are predicted from the surrounding spatial context.

    Control of plant cell fate transitions by transcriptional and hormonal signals

    Christophe Gaillochet et al.
    HEC transcription factors control the timing of cell fate transitions in a dynamic stem cell system, allowing plants to adapt their developmental program to diverse environments.

    True S-cones are concentrated in the ventral mouse retina and wired for color detection in the upper visual field

    Francisco M Nadal-Nicolás et al.
    Unique 'true' S-cone and S-cone bipolar cell distribution patterns in the mouse retina are previously unappreciated anatomical features that support enhanced short-wavelength signaling for color detection above horizon.

    Re-examining the role of Drosophila Sas-4 in centrosome assembly using two-colour-3D-SIM FRAP

    Paul T Conduit et al.
    Building on previous work (Conduit et al., 2014), and contrary to what was previously thought, it is shown that key centrosomal proteins are not recruited to centrosomes as part of large multi-protein assemblies.

    Cytoneme-mediated cell-cell contacts for Hedgehog reception

    Laura González-Méndez et al.
    Direct interaction between Hedgehog-sending and Hedgehog-receiving cytonemes is a fundamental mechanism for morphogen transfer and gradient establishment.

    DDM1 and Lsh remodelers allow methylation of DNA wrapped in nucleosomes

    David B Lyons, Daniel Zilberman
    Nucleosomes and linker histones block eukaryotic cytosine methylation.
