    Defining the location of promoter-associated R-loops at near-nucleotide resolution using bisDRIP-seq

    Jason G Dumelie, Samie R Jaffrey
    Genome-wide profiling of R-loops at near single-nucleotide resolution reveals distinct R-loop boundaries depending on the presence and location of the first exon-intron junction.

    Reproduction: Parasites opt for the best of both worlds

    Ellen Decaestecker, Lore Bulteel
    The fungal parasite Podosphaera plantaginis employs both sexual and asexual reproduction to increase its chances of infecting the plant Plantago lanceolata.

    Variable opportunities for outcrossing result in hotspots of novel genetic variation in a pathogen metapopulation

    Anna-Liisa Laine et al.
    In natural pathogen populations opportunities for sexual outcrossing vary, leading to spatial variation in genetic diversity and between-season survival.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: An organismal perspective on C. intestinalis development, origins and diversification

    Matthew J Kourakis, William C Smith
    The life cycle and morphology of the sea squirt Ciona intestinalis shed light on vertebrate evolution.

    Layered roles of fruitless isoforms in specification and function of male aggression-promoting neurons in Drosophila

    Margot Wohl et al.
    Male-type aggressive and courtship behaviors of the fruit flies are differentially specified by two sex-determining genes, providing a substrate for the evolution to sculpt these two behaviors independently.

    The inner junction complex of the cilia is an interaction hub that involves tubulin post-translational modifications

    Ahmad Abdelzaher Zaki Khalifa et al.
    A structure of the ciliary inner junction at 3.6 Å resolution permits atomic modeling of six inner junction proteins and their interactions with acetylated lysine 40 loops of alpha tubulins.

    Evolutionary stasis of the pseudoautosomal boundary in strepsirrhine primates

    Rylan Shearn et al.
    A larger non-recombining region in sexually dimorphic primates compared to sexually monomorphic ones supports the view that sexually antagonistic mutations have influenced the evolution of sex chromosomes in primates.

    Using the Volta phase plate with defocus for cryo-EM single particle analysis

    Radostin Danev et al.
    Building on previous work in cryo-electron microscopy (Entchev et al, 2015), it shown that a combination of the Volta phase plate and a small amount of defocus can simplify the experimental set-up, increase the data acquisition rate and improve resolution.

    Sex-specific effects of cooperative breeding and colonial nesting on prosociality in corvids

    Lisa Horn et al.
    A systematic experimental comparison of prosocial behavior in eight corvid species reveals sex-specific effects of cooperative breeding and colonial nesting, thereby adding important new insights regarding the evolution of prosociality.
