    Acknowledging selection at sub-organismal levels resolves controversy on pro-cooperation mechanisms

    Wenying Shou
    Building on previous work (Momeni et al., 2013), it is shown that recognizing the hierarchical organization of biological systems resolves the ongoing controversy on pro-cooperation mechanisms.

    Implications of being born late in the active season for growth, fattening, torpor use, winter survival and fecundity

    Britta Mahlert et al.
    Being born late in the active season is associated with a fast life history in a hibernating species, the garden dormouse (Eliomys quercinus).

    Dynamics of the IFT machinery at the ciliary tip

    Alexander Chien et al.
    During intraflagellar transport (IFT), kinesin-II dissociates from IFT trains at the flagellar tip and its diffusion in flagella serves as a negative feedback mechanism that facilitates flagellar length control in Chlamydomonas.

    Arabidopsis plants perform arithmetic division to prevent starvation at night

    Antonio Scialdone et al.
    Plants implement arithmetic division to optimize use of carbohydrate reserves and thus maintain metabolism and growth at night.

    Chemogenetic inhibition of the medial prefrontal cortex reverses the effects of REM sleep loss on sucrose consumption

    Kristopher McEown et al.
    Loss of REM sleep increases sucrose and fat consumption in mice; and inhibiting the prefrontal cortex reverses the increased consumption of sucrose, but not fat, following REM sleep loss.

    Piezo Ion Channels: Portraits of a pressure sensor

    Alexander T Chesler, Marcin Szczot
    Near atomic-resolution structures have provided insights into the mechanisms by which the Piezo1 ion channel senses and responds to mechanical stimuli.

  1. Peer Review: Searching for the one

    Helga Groll
    The views of peers are important when applying for a faculty position, but so are research plans and being a good 'fit'.
  2. 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.
