    Topologically correct synthetic reconstruction of pathogen social behavior found during Yersinia growth in deep tissue sites

    Stacie A Clark et al.
    Tissue infection by an extracellular pathogen is recapitulated by encasing a bacterial colony within a droplet gel to allow immune cell attack, driving spatially-controlled microbial social behavior.

    DNA damage checkpoint activation impairs chromatin homeostasis and promotes mitotic catastrophe during aging

    Matthew M Crane et al.
    Activation of a DNA-damage cell cycle checkpoint during aging causes genome instability and senescence in yeast mother cells.

    Initiation of chromosome replication controls both division and replication cycles in E. coli through a double-adder mechanism

    Guillaume Witz et al.
    Single-cell measurements combined with a new statistical framework for discriminating between models of cell cycle regulation show that chromosome initiation controls the E. coli cell cycle via two adder mechanisms.

    Multiple inputs ensure yeast cell size homeostasis during cell cycle progression

    Cecilia Garmendia-Torres et al.
    Yeast cell size homeostasis is not controlled by a G1-specific mechanism alone but is likely to be an emergent property resulting from the integration of several mechanisms that coordinate cell and bud growth with division.

    Modulation of formin processivity by profilin and mechanical tension

    Luyan Cao et al.
    Profilin helps to maintain formin at the growing barbed end of an actin filament, while piconewton mechanical tension drastically enhances formin dissociation from the barbed end.

    The size of the EB cap determines instantaneous microtubule stability

    Christian Duellberg et al.
    The EB binding region defines the length of the protective cap that stabilizes growing microtubules.

    Droplet-based high-throughput cultivation for accurate screening of antibiotic resistant gut microbes

    William J Watterson et al.
    High-throughput droplet-based cultivation of gut microbes reduces biases of traditional cultivation strategies and thereby enables detection of difficult-to-culture organisms, which is required in applications such as antibiotic screening.

    Intelligent classification of platelet aggregates by agonist type

    Yuqi Zhou et al.
    An intelligent method is developed to morphologically classify platelet aggregates by agonist type, which potentially opens a window on novel clinical diagnostics and therapeutics of thrombotic disorders.

    Quantitative mapping of protein-peptide affinity landscapes using spectrally encoded beads

    Huy Quoc Nguyen et al.
    A novel high-throughput method for measuring many weak protein-peptide affinities simultaneously reveals how calcineurin, a human phosphatase essential for the immune response, recognizes its peptide substrates.

    Limits on information transduction through amplitude and frequency regulation of transcription factor activity

    Anders S Hansen, Erin K O'Shea
    The ability of cells to transmit information encoded in signaling dynamics is fundamentally limited by the gene decoding step.
