    Linking functional and molecular mechanisms of host resilience to malaria infection

    Tsukushi Kamiya et al.
    With a data-driven mathematical modelling approach, within-host ecological information alone can provide clues on the mechanistic basis of diverse malaria infection outcomes.

    Autonomous clocks that regulate organelle biogenesis, cytoskeletal organization, and intracellular dynamics

    Mohammad Mofatteh et al.
    Latest advances in biological timing studies substantiate an emerging concept of autonomous clocks that are normally entrained by the cell cycle and/or the circadian clock to run in synchrony, but have evolved to run independently to regulate different cellular events.

    Unexpected plasticity in the life cycle of Trypanosoma brucei

    Sarah Schuster et al.
    Parasite life cycles may be more flexible than traditionally thought, potentially allowing single-cell infections of insect vectors and transmission between hosts even at very low parasite densities.

    Interferon receptor-deficient mice are susceptible to eschar-associated rickettsiosis

    Thomas P Burke et al.
    Type I interferon and interferon-γ signaling redundantly protects mice from the tick-borne pathogen Rickettsia parkeri in the skin, and interferon receptor-deficient mice are a tractable model for investigating rickettsiosis.

    Evolution of cytokine production capacity in ancient and modern European populations

    Jorge Domínguez-Andrés et al.
    Neolithic was a turning point for immune responses in Europeans, favoring tolerance against intracellular pathogens, promoting inflammation against extracellular microbes, and being related to current auto-immune diseases.

    An oomycete effector subverts host vesicle trafficking to channel starvation-induced autophagy to the pathogen interface

    Pooja Pandey et al.
    A pathogen effector mimics starvation-induced autophagy by subverting host endomembrane trafficking to stimulate biogenesis of autophagosomes around pathogen feeding sites, revealing how pathogens interlock distinct host compartments to facilitate infection.

    Price equation captures the role of drug interactions and collateral effects in the evolution of multidrug resistance

    Erida Gjini, Kevin B Wood
    A simple mathematical model reveals that antibiotic interactions and collateral effects of evolution are inseparable drivers of multidrug resistance linked by the well-known Price equation from evolutionary theory.

    The role of interspecies recombination in the evolution of antibiotic-resistant pneumococci

    Joshua C D'Aeth et al.
    Selection by national-level antibiotic consumption and vaccination trends drives atypical recombinations, frequently resulting in interspecies sequence exchange at many sites across a bacterial species’ chromosome.

    Structure-guided microbial targeting of antistaphylococcal prodrugs

    Justin J Miller et al.
    Prodrug antibiotics can be designed that are serum-stable but readily cleaved inside bacterial pathogens.
