The Natural History of Model Organisms: Genetic, evolutionary and plant breeding insights from the domestication of maize
Sarah Hake, Jeffrey Ross-Ibarra
Comparing maize to its wild ancestor teosinte advances our understanding of how it and other cereal crops evolved, and also identifies the genetic variation that can contribute to important agricultural traits.
Research Culture: A survey of travel behaviour among scientists in Germany and the potential for change
A survey of scientists working in Germany reveals that most already travel to conferences in a sustainable manner and would be willing to make further changes to protect the environment.

Point of View: A transatlantic perspective on 20 emerging issues in biological engineering
Bonnie C Wintle et al.
Horizon scanning has been used to identify opportunities and risks presented by 20 emerging issues in the field of biological engineering.
The Natural History of Model Organisms: From molecular manipulation of domesticated
to survival in nature
Severin Sasso et al.
Dubbed the 'green yeast', the model alga
has profoundly advanced many areas of biology, but much remains to be learnt about its life in the wild.
Living Science: Power analysis
Indira M Raman
After acknowledging that power differentials exist, can scientists find inspiration to persevere anyway?

The Natural History of Model Organisms: The untapped potential of medaka and its wild relatives
Leon Hilgers, Julia Schwarzer
Studies of medaka and other ricefishes in the wild could provide insights in fields such as evolutionary biology, development and cancer research.
The Natural History of Model Organisms:
, an 'instant' fish from an ephemeral habitat
Martin Reichard, Matej Polačik
The turquoise killifish from ephemeral pools in African savannah combines extremely short lifespan with a standard vertebrate body plan – ideal attributes for a laboratory animal.
Cutting Edge: Using mobile sequencers in an academic classroom
Sophie Zaaijer et al.
A university genomics class provides detailed examples of how to design and execute Oxford Nanopore MinION hackathons as part of an academic curriculum.
Point of View: Basic research at the epicenter of an epidemic
William R Bishai
William R Bishai, director of the KwaZulu-Natal Research Institute for Tuberculosis and HIV (K-RITH), argues that the best place to carry out research into a disease is in its midst.
