  1. Research: Gender bias in scholarly peer review

    Markus Helmer et al.
    Gender-bias in peer reviewing might persist even when gender-equity is reached because both male and female editors operate with a same-gender preference whose characteristics differ by editor-gender.
    1. Genetics and Genomics

    Background selection and biased gene conversion affect more than 95% of the human genome and bias demographic inferences

    Fanny Pouyet et al.
    Background selection and GC-biased gene conversion impact the human genome to a much larger extent than previously recognized in low and high recombination rate regions, respectively.
  2. 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'.
    1. Evolutionary Biology

    Support for a clade of Placozoa and Cnidaria in genes with minimal compositional bias

    Christopher E Laumer et al.
    Protein coding genes strongly support a sister group relationship between Placozoa and Cnidaria to the exclusion of Bilateria, contradicting previous phylogenies, which have likely been misled by pervasive compositional heterogeneity.
  3. Peer Review: Rooting out bias

    Bridget M Kuehn
    Tackling unconscious bias is a major challenge for journals and the rest of the scientific community.

    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.
    1. Microbiology and Infectious Disease

    Research: A comprehensive and quantitative exploration of thousands of viral genomes

    Gita Mahmoudabadi, Rob Phillips
    A compendium of critical genomic numbers for viruses through the lenses of different viral classification systems.
  4. Point of View: The future of graduate and postdoctoral training in the biosciences

    Peter Hitchcock et al.
    What can institutions and funding agencies do to address an array of issues facing the biomedical research community in the United States?
