    Polygenic adaptation on height is overestimated due to uncorrected stratification in genome-wide association studies

    Mashaal Sohail et al.
    Polygenic selection signals in humans estimated from previously existing GWAS should be viewed with caution due to concerns about residual population stratification.

    Genome-wide regulatory dynamics of translation in the Plasmodium falciparum asexual blood stages

    Florence Caro et al.
    Ribosome profiling has bridged the knowledge gap between transcription and translation during malaria blood stage development and provided a comprehensive gene expression resource for this parasite.

    Genome-wide Estrogen Receptor-α activation is sustained, not cyclical

    Andrew N Holding et al.
    Activation of the Estrogen Receptor by estra-2-diol results in sustained binding and the previously described cyclical response kinetics are likely an artefact of observing a highly variable process without replicates.

    Chromatin-associated RNA sequencing (ChAR-seq) maps genome-wide RNA-to-DNA contacts

    Jason C Bell et al.
    ChAR-seq is a massively parallelized de novo RNA mapping assay, which is capable of generating hundreds to thousands of RNA-binding maps with no a priori knowledge of target RNAs.

    The sterol-responsive RNF145 E3 ubiquitin ligase mediates the degradation of HMG-CoA reductase together with gp78 and Hrd1

    Sam A Menzies et al.
    CRISPR/Cas9 genome-wide screens using sterol-sensitive endogenous HMG-CoA reductase (HMGCR) reporter identify the sterol-responsive RNF145 and gp78 as independently responsible for sterol-accelerated degradation of HMGCR, the rate-limiting enzyme of cholesterol biosynthesis.

    The composition and organization of Drosophila heterochromatin are heterogeneous and dynamic

    Joel M Swenson et al.
    Identification of novel components and regulators of heterochromatin reveals a spatially complex and dynamic organization.

    Functional genome-wide siRNA screen identifies KIAA0586 as mutated in Joubert syndrome

    Susanne Roosing et al.
    A supervised learning approach on a high-content genome-wide siRNA screen has identified 591 likely candidates for ciliopathies and facilitated in the discovery of KIAA0586 mutations in individuals with Joubert syndrome.

    Effects of lifelong testosterone exposure on health and disease using Mendelian randomization

    Pedrum Mohammadi-Shemirani et al.
    Long-term increased testosterone improved body composition and bone density, but lowered HDL and raised risks of hypertension, androgenic alopecia, prostate cancer, and spinal stenosis in males.

    Genetic architecture of 11 organ traits derived from abdominal MRI using deep learning

    Yi Liu et al.
    Systematic quantification of abdominal organ health parameters using deep learning generates new insights into the genetic architecture of cardiometabolic health traits.

    Genome-wide mapping of sister chromatid exchange events in single yeast cells using Strand-seq

    Clémence Claussin et al.
    Genome-wide analysis of sister chromatid exchange using single-cell sequencing reveals that most spontaneous sister chromatid exchange events are not due to the repair of double-strand DNA breaks in wild-type yeast cells.
