    Evidence for a common evolutionary rate in metazoan transcriptional networks

    Anne-Ruxandra Carvunis et al.
    Transcriptional regulation evolves at indistinguishable rates in mammals, birds and insect lineages despite large differences in underlying rates of sequence evolution.

    Rapid diversification associated with a macroevolutionary pulse of developmental plasticity

    Vladislav Susoy et al.
    Evolutionary novelty is promoted by a macroevolutionary pulse of developmental plasticity, but is enhanced by secondary fixation, which permits developmental character release and further morphological exploration.

    Strong biomechanical relationships bias the tempo and mode of morphological evolution

    Martha M Muñoz et al.
    The rules of biomechanics consistently influence the tempo (rate) and mode (pattern) of evolution across four-bar linkage systems in animals.

    The life cycle of Drosophila orphan genes

    Nicola Palmieri et al.
    The short lifetime of orphan genes is a major factor explaining the stability of gene number in Drosophila.

    Wnt/β-catenin signaling is an evolutionarily conserved determinant of chordate dorsal organizer

    Iryna Kozmikova, Zbynek Kozmik
    Wnt/beta-catenin signaling is essential for the specification of dorsal cell fate in amphioxus, suggesting a common evolutionary origin for the formation of the dorsal organizer in chordates.

    Evolution of the hypoxia-sensitive cells involved in amniote respiratory reflexes

    Dorit Hockman et al.
    Embryonic fate-mapping approaches in zebrafish, Xenopus and lamprey illuminate the evolutionary origins of carotid body glomus cells and pulmonary neuroendocrine cells.

    Indirect sexual selection drives rapid sperm protein evolution in abalone

    Damien Beau Wilburn et al.
    An NMR-based structural study of sperm proteins reveals a novel protein packaging/dispersion system embedded in a coevolutionary arms race.

    Minor introns are embedded molecular switches regulated by highly unstable U6atac snRNA

    Ihab Younis et al.
    Hundreds of cell growth and stress response genes are controlled by a rare small RNA component of an ancient splicing machinery, providing a raison d'être for its previously unexplained evolutionary conservation.

    The skin microbiome facilitates adaptive tetrodotoxin production in poisonous newts

    Patric M Vaelli et al.
    Skin-associated bacteria underlie the production of a potent defensive neurotoxin in newts, impacting host physiology, molecular evolution, and predator-prey interactions in a coevolutionary arms race.
