    Quantitative system drift compensates for altered maternal inputs to the gap gene network of the scuttle fly Megaselia abdita

    Karl R Wotton et al.
    Quantitative system-level analysis of a pattern-forming gene regulatory network in a non-model organism shows that dynamic changes in gene expression evolve through quantitative system drift.

    Elastic instability during branchial ectoderm development causes folding of the Chlamydosaurus erectile frill

    Sophie A Montandon et al.
    Robust wrinkling pattern of the frilled dragon’s spectacular erectile ruff emerges from an elastic instability during homogeneous growth of the embryonic neck fold frustrated by its attachment to adjacent tissues.

  1. Research: Publication bias and the canonization of false facts

    Silas Boye Nissen et al.
    Publication bias, in which positive results are preferentially reported by authors and published by journals, can restrict the visibility of evidence against false claims and allow such claims to be canonized inappropriately as facts.
