    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.

    Cell competition removes segmental aneuploid cells from Drosophila imaginal disc-derived tissues based on ribosomal protein gene dose

    Zhejun Ji et al.
    Cell competition is an important mechanism selecting against aneuploid cells.

    Conversion of random X-inactivation to imprinted X-inactivation by maternal PRC2

    Clair Harris et al.
    The PRC2 Polycomb complex made in the mouse oocyte prevents transcriptional inactivation of the maternal X-chromosome in the early embryo.

    Guy1, a Y-linked embryonic signal, regulates dosage compensation in Anopheles stephensi by increasing X gene expression

    Yumin Qi et al.
    For the first time in a mosquito species an initial Y chromosome signal has been shown to regulate dosage compensation by increasing X chromosome gene expression.

    The Aquilegia genome provides insight into adaptive radiation and reveals an extraordinarily polymorphic chromosome with a unique history

    Danièle L Filiault et al.
    The evolution columbine genus involved frequent mixing between incipient species, and one chromosome appears to have taken its own path.

    Condensin controls cellular RNA levels through the accurate segregation of chromosomes instead of directly regulating transcription

    Clémence Hocquet et al.
    Contrary to the generally accepted model, condensin maintains proper gene expression by promoting the accurate segregation of chromosomes and the partitioning of the RNA-exosome throughout mitosis, instead of directly regulating transcription.

    Dose-dependent action of the RNA binding protein FOX-1 to relay X-chromosome number and determine C. elegans sex

    Behnom Farboud et al.
    RNA binding protein FOX-1 functions as a dose-dependent X-signal element to communicate X-chromosome number and determine nematode sex by controlling alternative non-productive pre-mRNA splicing of the master sex-determination switch gene.

    Centromere deletion in Cryptococcus deuterogattii leads to neocentromere formation and chromosome fusions

    Klaas Schotanus, Joseph Heitman
    Centromere deletion in Cryptococcus deuterogattii results in neocentromeres, which span actively expressed genes and at elevated temperatures cen10∆ mutants are unstable leading to chromosome fusion and silencing of the neocentromere.

    No current evidence for widespread dosage compensation in S. cerevisiae

    Eduardo M Torres et al.
    Dosage compensation does not take place in wild yeast strains.

    Functional evidence implicating chromosome 7q22 haploinsufficiency in myelodysplastic syndrome pathogenesis

    Jasmine C Wong et al.
    Immature hematopoietic cells from mice with a large segmental deletion found in human myeloid malignancies exhibit cardinal features of myelodysplastic syndrome.
