    Tuning movement for sensing in an uncertain world

    Chen Chen et al.
    Animals work in a world full of surprises, where using energy to position sensors proportional to the location's expected information avoids the pitfalls of positioning them at the information maxima.

    Smchd1 is a maternal effect gene required for genomic imprinting

    Iromi Wanigasuriya et al.
    Imprinted gene expression is set up during a critical window of early embryonic development, by the translation of parental imprints by oocyte-supplied Smchd1 into allele-specific gene silencing.

    Microtubules originate asymmetrically at the somatic golgi and are guided via Kinesin2 to maintain polarity within neurons

    Amrita Mukherjee et al.
    The somatic Golgi acts as an asymmetric MTOC within Drosophila neurons, and this, together with the action Kinesin-2, helps maintain minus-end-out microtubule polarity with proximal dendrites.

    An integrative genomic analysis of the Longshanks selection experiment for longer limbs in mice

    João PL Castro et al.
    Genome sequencing of mice selected for longer limbs reveals that rapid selection response is due to both discrete loci and polygenic adaptation.

    Morphogenetic degeneracies in the actomyosin cortex

    Sundar Ram Naganathan et al.
    Distinct molecular functions contribute to the same material property at larger scales leading to degenerate functionality.

    Cortical flow aligns actin filaments to form a furrow

    Anne-Cecile Reymann et al.
    Compressing the actomyosin network by cortical flow causes filaments to align and form a constricting ring.

    Distinct SoxB1 networks are required for naïve and primed pluripotency

    Andrea Corsinotti et al.
    Genetic manipulations show that endogenous transcription factors of the SoxB1 class act redundantly to maintain primed pluripotency and reveal differential effects on transitions between pluripotent and differentiation states.

    Convergence of topological domain boundaries, insulators, and polytene interbands revealed by high-resolution mapping of chromatin contacts in the early Drosophila melanogaster embryo

    Michael R Stadler et al.
    Fruit fly chromosomes are divided into discrete structural domains by regions of decompacted chromatin, suggesting a novel model for the formation of a known class of genetic elements.

    Matriptase activation of Gq drives epithelial disruption and inflammation via RSK and DUOX

    Jiajia Ma et al.
    The serine protease Matriptase orchestrates simultaneous epithelial cell motility and inflammation in pathological states through respective activation of the MAPK pathway and generation of hydrogen peroxide.
