    Prolyl dihydroxylation of unassembled uS12/Rps23 regulates fungal hypoxic adaptation

    Sara J Clasen et al.
    The protein uS12/Rps23 functions extra-ribosomally to control oxygen homeostasis in fission yeast.

    Pericentrin-mediated SAS-6 recruitment promotes centriole assembly

    Daisuke Ito et al.
    Newly discovered interaction between fission yeast SPB and animal centriole components reveals that pericentrin not only functions as a microtubule-nucleator, but also promotes centriole assembly in animals.

    Circular RNA biogenesis can proceed through an exon-containing lariat precursor

    Steven P Barrett et al.
    Systematic splice site mutagenesis and the identification of splicing intermediates provides evidence that the dominant mechanism for the generation of circular RNA in fission yeast proceeds through an exon-containing lariat precursor.

    Noncoding RNA-nucleated heterochromatin spreading is intrinsically labile and requires accessory elements for epigenetic stability

    R A Greenstein et al.
    Heterochromatin spreading in fission yeast predominantly produces intergenerationally unstable outcomes, requiring an accessory element that represses histone turnover.

    Point of View: Is cell size a spandrel?

    Ariel Amir
    Analysis of experiments on bacteria suggests that the dependence of cell size on growth rate is not an adaptation but a causal consequence of a regulatory mechanism that controls DNA replication.

    Point of View: Looking back and looking forward at Janelia

    Gerald M Rubin, Erin K O'Shea
    The Janelia Research Campus opened its doors 12 years ago: we describe the philosophy underpinning Janelia, the lessons learned, and plans for the future.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: Advancing biology through a deeper understanding of zebrafish ecology and evolution

    David M Parichy
    The zebrafish is a premier model organism for biomedical research, with a rich array of tools and genomic resources, and combining these with a fuller appreciation of wild zebrafish ecology could greatly extend its utility in biological research.
