    Point of View: Data science for the scientific life cycle

    Daphne Ezer, Kirstie Whitaker
    Each stage of the scientific life cycle stands to benefit from the introduction of data science techniques.
    1. Plant Biology

    Flowering time and seed dormancy control use external coincidence to generate life history strategy

    Vicki Springthorpe, Steven Penfield
    Models of plant behaviour show that flowering early in a warming world is an adaptive strategy to insulate progeny seed behaviour from the affects of climate change.

    Convergent recruitment of TALE homeodomain life cycle regulators to direct sporophyte development in land plants and brown algae

    Alok Arun et al.
    TALE homeodomain transcription factors have been independently recruited to regulate gametophyte to sporophyte transitions in two complex multicellular eukaryotic supergroups, land plants in Archaeplastida and brown algae in Chromalveolata.

    Light-based tuning of ligand half-life supports kinetic proofreading model of T cell signaling

    Doug K Tischer, Orion David Weiner
    Direct control of ligand binding half-life with light shows that lifetime strongly affects T cell signaling.
