    Temporal dynamics and developmental memory of 3D chromatin architecture at Hox gene loci

    Daan Noordermeer et al.
    Hox genes are activated sequentially and, at the same time, undergo a transition from an inactive to an active chromatin compartment, most likely to prevent posterior genes being activated too early.

    Local cell interactions and self-amplifying individual cell ingression drive amniote gastrulation

    Octavian Voiculescu et al.
    A combination of two local cell interactions, intercalation and ingression amplified by a community-effect, is sufficient to explain the global movements of amniote gastrulation.

    The transcription factor Pou3f1 promotes neural fate commitment via activation of neural lineage genes and inhibition of external signaling pathways

    Qingqing Zhu et al.
    The transcription factor Pou3f1 triggers embryonic stem cells to become neuronal progenitor cells in two ways: by activating the expression of pro-neuronal genes and by blocking external inhibitory signaling cascades.

    Science Forum: Considerations when investigating lncRNA function in vivo

    Andrew R Bassett et al.
    We discuss the methods available to understand lncRNA function in vivo, and highlight important considerations that should be taken into account when designing such experiments.

    Early patterning and specification of cardiac progenitors in gastrulating mesoderm

    W Patrick Devine et al.
    Multipotent cardiac precursors within a population of mesoderm are rapidly fated to specific anatomic locations in the developing mouse heart.

    Establishment of regions of genomic activity during the Drosophila maternal to zygotic transition

    Xiao-Yong Li et al.
    Drosophila melanogaster embryos undergo a dramatic genomic transformation in the hour preceding gastrulation, as thousands of promoters and regulatory regions become biochemically distinct before they become active.

    A host beetle pheromone regulates development and behavior in the nematode Pristionchus pacificus

    Jessica K Cinkornpumin et al.
    A lipid-binding protein mediates both attraction and hypersensitivity to a beetle sex pheromone in a specific type of nematode-insect relationship known as necromeny.

    The transcription factor Pitx2 positions the embryonic axis and regulates twinning

    Angela Torlopp et al.
    In higher vertebrates, the position of the embryonic axis (the location at which gastrulation starts) is determined by the transcription factor Pitx2, which suggests that the mechanisms of this process, and hence those that regulate twinning, are related to those that set up the left–right axis.

    Regulation of RNA granule dynamics by phosphorylation of serine-rich, intrinsically disordered proteins in C. elegans

    Jennifer T Wang et al.
    The MEG (maternal-effect germline defective) proteins, MEG-1, 2, 3 and 4, regulate RNA granule dynamics in vivo.

    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.
