    DCC regulates astroglial development essential for telencephalic morphogenesis and corpus callosum formation

    Laura Morcom et al.
    Axon guidance molecules DCC and NTN1 regulate astroglial-mediated interhemispheric remodelling required for corpus callosum formation in humans and mice.

    Widespread premature transcription termination of Arabidopsis thaliana NLR genes by the spen protein FPA

    Matthew T Parker et al.
    The expression of Arabidopsis NLR immune response genes is modulated by premature transcription termination, and this has implications for understanding NLR regulation and evolutionary dynamics.

    Molecular tracking devices quantify antigen distribution and archiving in the murine lymph node

    Shannon M Walsh et al.
    Antigen-phosphorothioate DNA conjugation provides a vaccination strategy where stable barcodes facilitate the detection and quantification of antigen using single-cell RNA sequencing.

    Homoplasy in the evolution of modern human-like joint proportions in Australopithecus afarensis

    Anjali M Prabhat et al.
    The human-like joint proportions of Australopithecus afarensis evolved independently, making 'Lucy' and her kind the earliest known evolutionary experiment in obligate bipedalism.

    Confinement discerns swarmers from planktonic bacteria

    Weijie Chen et al.
    For the same bacterial strain, the swarming phenotype can be biophysically discerned from swimming phenotype based on the motion pattern under circular confinement on a soft agar.

    Multiple decisions about one object involve parallel sensory acquisition but time-multiplexed evidence incorporation

    Yul HR Kang et al.
    When making two decisions about one object, two streams of information can be acquired in parallel but must be incorporated into the two decisions serially, consistent with a central bottleneck.

    The final step of 40S ribosomal subunit maturation is controlled by a dual key lock

    Laura Plassart et al.
    Cryo-EM and functional studies reveal how combined action of proteins RPS26/eS26 and RIO1 allows late precursors to the human small ribosomal particle to be matured into fully translation-competent 40S subunits.

    Coronary plaque composition influences biomechanical stress and predicts plaque rupture in a morpho-mechanic OCT analysis

    Andrea Milzi et al.
    Assessing plaque biomechanics by optical coherence tomography highlights the importance of the disrupting effects of plaque stress, bringing stress concentrations as the prime movers of plaque rupture back into clinical practice.

    Single mosquito metatranscriptomics identifies vectors, emerging pathogens and reservoirs in one assay

    Joshua Batson et al.
    How large-scale single mosquito metatranscriptomics can define the mosquito’s complex microbiota and its blood meal sources, and contribute critical epidemiological information needed to control vector borne disease transmission, is shown.

    A calcineurin-mediated scaling mechanism that controls a K+-leak channel to regulate morphogen and growth factor transcription

    Chao Yi et al.
    Calcineurin regulates an electrophysiological mechanism that activates the transcription of specific developmental genes in a heirarchical manner to scale fish appendages.
