    Genetic variation in the social environment affects behavioral phenotypes of oxytocin receptor mutants in zebrafish

    Diogo Ribeiro et al.
    Individual social behavior results from the interaction between the individuals own oxytocin receptor genotype and the oxytocin receptor genotypes of other individuals present in its social environment.

    Genetic variation in offspring indirectly influences the quality of maternal behaviour in mice

    David George Ashbrook et al.
    A cross-fostered population of mice reveals loci on offspring chromosomes 5 and 7 that modify the behaviour of their mothers, along with evidence of coadaptation between offspring and parental traits.

    Philosophy of Biology: The analysis of living systems can generate both knowledge and illusions

    Antony M Jose
    By thinking about experimental techniques in terms of six broad approaches – perturbation, visualization, substitution, characterization, reconstitution, and simulation – researchers may be able to generate more reliable inferences.
