    Identifying the immune interactions underlying HLA class I disease associations

    Bisrat J Debebe et al.
    HLA class I-disease associations have been studied for decades; a new approach for investigating the underlying mechanism can overcome past problems with interpretation and help to understand the etiology of human diseases.

    Systematic genetic analysis of the MHC region reveals mechanistic underpinnings of HLA type associations with disease

    Matteo D'Antonio et al.
    Analysis of the major histocompatibility complex using whole genome sequencing and RNA-seq data from hundreds of individuals provides novel insights into mechanisms underlying associations of this interval with disease.

    Immunogenetics: Untangling the immune basis of disease susceptibility

    Ruy M Ribeiro, Luis Graca
    Interactions between immune cell receptors and proteins that determine disease susceptibility shed light on how different arms of the immune system are involved in three viral infections and Crohn's disease.

    Association mapping from sequencing reads using k-mers

    Atif Rahman et al.
    Associations can be mapped using k-mer frequencies in sequencing reads without prior sequencing of a reference genome enabling detection of associations to variants of multiple types and outside of the reference.

    Characterisation of the opposing effects of G6PD deficiency on cerebral malaria and severe malarial anaemia

    Geraldine M Clarke et al.
    Increasing levels of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency are associated with decreasing risk of cerebral malaria, but with increased risk of severe malarial anaemia.

    Epidermal barrier defects link atopic dermatitis with altered skin cancer susceptibility

    Sara Cipolat et al.
    A mouse model of atopic dermatitis provides mechanistic evidence for an association between allergic disease and skin cancer.

    Adjusting for age improves identification of gut microbiome alterations in multiple diseases

    Tarini S Ghosh et al.
    A multi-cohort analysis of 2,500 gut microbiomes and five major diseases discovers that disease-microbiome associations display specific age-centric trends, with diseases characterized by age-centric trends of species gain/loss.

    Competition between Tropomyosin, Fimbrin, and ADF/Cofilin drives their sorting to distinct actin filament networks

    Jenna R Christensen et al.
    Both cooperative and competitive associations of actin binding proteins with actin filaments help drive the self-organization of functionally diverse F-actin networks in fission yeast.

    Synthetic protein interactions reveal a functional map of the cell

    Lisa K Berry et al.
    Forcing protein associations across the proteome reveals the cell's tolerance for diverse protein interactions and reveals the interactions that affect growth.

    Trans-toxin ion-sensitivity of charybdotoxin-blocked potassium-channels reveals unbinding transitional states

    Hans Moldenhauer et al.
    Detection of unbinding transitional states in the charybdotoxin first-order dissociation from a Kv-channel reveals that the bound neurotoxin wobbles, suggesting diverse intermediates and dissociation pathways in this protein–protein interaction.
