    Pathogen effectors and plant immunity determine specialization of the blast fungus to rice subspecies

    Jingjing Liao et al.
    Specialized fungal pathogen populations infect rice varieties with contrasting immune systems co-cultivated in a traditional agro-system, indicating the relevance of crop diversity to restricting epidemics in the landscape.

    Curvature-induced expulsion of actomyosin bundles during cytokinetic ring contraction

    Junqi Huang et al.
    Cytokinetic actomyosin ring disassembly occurs through a novel mechanism in which the increased ring curvature, generated through contraction, itself promotes the disassembly process.

    Analogous mechanism regulating formation of neocortical basal radial glia and cerebellar Bergmann glia

    Xin Heng et al.
    Genome-wide transcriptional profiling and genetic analyses reveal conserved mechanisms underlying the generation of neocortical basal radial glia and cerebellar Bergmann glia.

    A novel role for the root cap in phosphate uptake and homeostasis

    Satomi Kanno et al.
    Real-time 33P imaging combined with specific complementation of inorganic phosphate transport in the root cap reveals this tissue’s contribution to phosphate uptake.

    Existence and functions of a kisspeptin neuropeptide signaling system in a non-chordate deuterostome species

    Tianming Wang et al.
    Identification and functional characterization of the first non-chordate kisspeptin neuropeptide system in the sea cucumber indicates the ancient origin of the intracellular signaling and physiological functions of this molecular system.

    Lipid transfer from plants to arbuscular mycorrhiza fungi

    Andreas Keymer et al.
    Identification of two arbuscular mycorrhiza-specific lipid biosynthesis mutants and fatty acid transfer experiments reveal that host plant lipids are transferred to symbiotic fungi and needed for their development.

    Evolution of gene dosage on the Z-chromosome of schistosome parasites

    Marion A L Picard et al.
    An analysis of gene dosage at the DNA, RNA and protein level yields new insights into the early stages of Z-chromosome dosage compensation in schistosome parasites.

    Epidermal LysM receptor ensures robust symbiotic signalling in Lotus japonicus

    Eiichi Murakami et al.
    Functional analyses provide evidence for a complex Nod factor signalling where NFRe is necessary for maintaining an optimal symbiotic signalling in the susceptible root zone, and initiation of nodule primordia on the expanding root system.

    The Natural History of Model Organisms: C. elegans outside the Petri dish

    Lise Frézal, Marie-Anne Félix
    To leverage the tools, resources and knowledge that exist for C. elegans so that we can study ecology, evolution and other aspects of biology, we need to understand the natural history of this important model organism.
