  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.

    Consistent and correctable bias in metagenomic sequencing experiments

    Michael R McLaren et al.
    A mathematical model of bias in marker-gene and metagenomic sequencing measurements explains systematic errors in defined mixtures of microbial species, and enables quantitative and reproducible investigation of biological communities.
    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.
    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.
    1. Medicine

    Meta-Research: COVID-19 medical papers have fewer women first authors than expected

    Jens Peter Andersen et al.
    Lockdowns in the United States caused by the COVID-19 pandemic appear related to a decrease in the number of women publishing research papers, especially as first authors.

    Meta-Research: Gender inequalities among authors who contributed equally

    Nichole A Broderick, Arturo Casadevall
    An analysis of papers in which two or more authors shared first-author position found that male authors were more likely than female authors to appear first in the author list.
    1. Biochemistry and Chemical Biology

    The zinc finger proteins ZNF644 and WIZ regulate the G9a/GLP complex for gene repression

    Chunjing Bian et al.
    Repression of gene expression by the histone methyltransferase G9a is guided by two zinc finger proteins that can recognize consensus sequences in DNA.

    2. Chromosomes and Gene Expression

    Chromatin signature of widespread monoallelic expression

    Anwesha Nag et al.
    Active and repressive chromatin marks, asymmetrically distributed between alleles, distinguish gene bodies subject to epigenetically controlled monoallelic expression on autosomes in human cells.
    1. Epidemiology and Global Health

    Longitudinal trajectories, correlations and mortality associations of nine biological ages across 20-years follow-up

    Xia Li et al.
    Biological ages have the potential to provide aging-related information beyond chronological age and can be predictive of mortality independently of both chronological age and different types of biological ages.
    1. Neuroscience

    Dynamic modulation of decision biases by brainstem arousal systems

    Jan Willem de Gee et al.
    Rapid increases in the brain’s level of alertness, or arousal, contribute to variability in decision making by reducing existing biases.
