    A highly accurate platform for clone-specific mutation discovery enables the study of active mutational processes

    Mohammad KaramiNejadRanjbar et al.
    A robust library preparation and variant calling strategy (DigiPico/MutLX) eliminates false positive single nucleotide variants from picogram quantities of DNA following whole genome amplification.

    Top-down machine learning approach for high-throughput single-molecule analysis

    David S White et al.
    A new analysis algorithm (DISC) enables accurate analysis of data from high-throughput single-molecule paradigms and reveals a non-cooperative binding mechanism of cyclic nucleotide-binding domains from HCN ion channels.

    The axonal actin-spectrin lattice acts as a tension buffering shock absorber

    Sushil Dubey et al.
    A linear array of spectrin tetramers imparts mechanical stability to axons by allowing spectrin domains to unfold reversibly when an axon is stretched, thereby acting as tension buffers.

    ParB spreading on DNA requires cytidine triphosphate in vitro

    Adam SB Jalal et al.
    A biochemical reconstitution shows that the accumulation of Caulobacter crescentus ParB on DNA requires cytidine triphosphate and a closed DNA substrate in vitro.

    Multiple kinesins induce tension for smooth cargo transport

    Marco Tjioe et al.
    After developing a force-gliding assay with nanometer and piconewton precision, it is concluded that multiple kinesins driving a single cargo induces tension, resulting in smooth cargo transport, even with roadblocks.

    High-throughput microcircuit analysis of individual human brains through next-generation multineuron patch-clamp

    Yangfan Peng et al.
    Combining a multineuron patch-clamp system with an automated pipette pressure and cleaning device enables efficient screening of synaptic connectivity in human brain slices and allows inter-individual comparison.

    Homology sensing via non-linear amplification of sequence-dependent pausing by RecQ helicase

    Yeonee Seol et al.
    The rate of DNA unwinding by RecQ helicases is dramatically modulated by the DNA duplex stability in a geometry-dependent manner, providing an intrinsic mechanism for suppressing illegitimate recombination.

    High-resolution and high-accuracy topographic and transcriptional maps of the nucleosome barrier

    Zhijie Chen et al.
    Direct observation of RNA Polymerase II transcription through a single nucleosome at near basepair resolution suggests a mechanism for selective control of gene expression.

    Determining cellular CTCF and cohesin abundances to constrain 3D genome models

    Claudia Cattoglio et al.
    Absolute quantification of CTCF and cohesin reveals quantitative constraints on 3D genome organization and illuminates the molecular architecture of the cohesin complex.

    Single cell, super-resolution imaging reveals an acid pH-dependent conformational switch in SsrB regulates SPI-2

    Andrew Tze Fui Liew et al.
    Inside the acidic vacuole, expression, DNA binding and DNA binding affinity of the Salmonella regulator SsrB is stimulated by acid pH.
