    The periaqueductal gray and Bayesian integration in placebo analgesia

    Arvina Grahl et al.
    Bayesian integration is able to predict placebo treatment outcomes by focusing especially on the influence of the precision of expectations.

    Changes in the genetic requirements for microbial interactions with increasing community complexity

    Manon Morin et al.
    Analysis of the global genetic requirements and gene expression changes in E. coli in the presence of a simple microbiome revealed pairwise and higher-order interactions, and underlying molecular mechanisms.

    Inferring joint sequence-structural determinants of protein functional specificity

    Andrew F Neuwald et al.
    A statistical approach for predicting non-active site residues responsible for allostery, cooperativity, or other subtle but functionally important interactions is described and applied to various protein families.

    Diversity and asynchrony in soil microbial communities stabilizes ecosystem functioning

    Cameron Wagg et al.
    Soil microbial diversity loss destabilizes the ability of the soil to function because greater diversity is needed to maintain temporal and functional asynchrony among different microbes.

    Systematic genetic analysis of the MHC region reveals mechanistic underpinnings of HLA type associations with disease

    Matteo D'Antonio et al.
    Analysis of the major histocompatibility complex using whole genome sequencing and RNA-seq data from hundreds of individuals provides novel insights into mechanisms underlying associations of this interval with disease.

    Functional genomics of lipid metabolism in the oleaginous yeast Rhodosporidium toruloides

    Samuel T Coradetti et al.
    Using barcoded mutagenesis and a high-throughput genetic screen results in the identification of 150 genes that affect lipid accumulation in a non-model yeast system.

    Body size-dependent energy storage causes Kleiber’s law scaling of the metabolic rate in planarians

    Albert Thommen et al.
    A combination of experimental and theoretical analysis identifies body size-dependent energy storage as the physiological cause of 3/4-power law scaling of the metabolic rate in planarians.

    Design principles of autocatalytic cycles constrain enzyme kinetics and force low substrate saturation at flux branch points

    Uri Barenholz et al.
    The stability of metabolic autocatalytic cycles that are widespread in central metabolism limits the affinities of enzymes at flux branch points and explains excess expression of these enzymes.

    The metal transporter ZIP13 supplies iron into the secretory pathway in Drosophila melanogaster

    Guiran Xiao et al.
    Drosophila ZIP13 (Slc39a13), a presumed zinc importer, is responsible for iron delivery to the secretory pathway.
