    Point of View: How should the applications of genome editing be assessed and regulated?

    Robin Fears, Volker ter Meulen
    An EASAC working group on genome editing recommends that regulators should focus on specific applications of these new techniques rather than attempting to regulate genome editing itself as a new technology.

    The genome of the crustacean Parhyale hawaiensis, a model for animal development, regeneration, immunity and lignocellulose digestion

    Damian Kao et al.
    The first malacostracan genome sequence will establish the genetically tractable Parhyale hawaiensis as a model organism in this key animal group.

    Enhanced homology-directed human genome engineering by controlled timing of CRISPR/Cas9 delivery

    Steven Lin et al.
    Building on previous work (Jinek et al., 2013), we report a simple and robust system to achieve high fidelity and high efficiency (30% of homologous recombination) genome engineering by homology-directed repair pathway in human cells using cell cycle synchronization and timed delivery of Cas9 ribonucleoprotein complexes.

    RNA-programmed genome editing in human cells

    Martin Jinek et al.
    A bacterial protein can be programmed with short RNA molecules to stimulate genome editing at specific sites in human cells.

    Prediction and characterization of enzymatic activities guided by sequence similarity and genome neighborhood networks

    Suwen Zhao et al.
    Genome neighborhood networks provide an efficient large-scale approach to mine metabolic pathway context for entire families of proteins and enzymes.

    Efficient termination of nuclear lncRNA transcription promotes mitochondrial genome maintenance

    Dorine Jeanne Mariëtte du Mee et al.
    RNA Polymerase II transcriptional termination of a nuclear long non-coding RNA is required to maintain the mitochondrial genome and hence promotes budding yeast growth.

    Global divergence in critical income for adult and childhood survival: analyses of mortality using Michaelis–Menten

    Ryan J Hum et al.
    A mathematical model based on enzyme kinetics shows how the relationships between life expectancy, survival rates for children and adults, and national income change over time.

    Catastrophic chromosomal restructuring during genome elimination in plants

    Ek Han Tan et al.
    Complex chromosomal rearrangements similar to those described in cancer and developmental syndromes occur in plants during postzygotic genome elimination, a centromeric-derived incompatibility.

    Structure of the germline genome of Tetrahymena thermophila and relationship to the massively rearranged somatic genome

    Eileen P Hamilton et al.
    The model organism Tetrahymena thermopile carries two nuclei with distinct genomes: an unrearranged germline genome with five chromosomes, and a somatic genome reduced in size by a third and with 181 chromosomes.

    Discovery and validation of sub-threshold genome-wide association study loci using epigenomic signatures

    Xinchen Wang et al.
    Epigenomic signatures overlapping disease-associated variants from genome-wide association studies help prioritize new variants in sub-threshold loci whose biological relevance is experimentally confirmed.
