    Homeostatic plasticity fails at the intersection of autism-gene mutations and a novel class of common genetic modifiers

    Özgür Genç et al.
    Forward genetic screens define a novel genetic landscape by which diverse, unrelated autism risk genes may converge to commonly affect the robustness of synaptic transmission.

    A network of epigenetic modifiers and DNA repair genes controls tissue-specific copy number alteration preference

    Dina Cramer et al.
    The genetic background of a cancer cell and the chromatin organization of the tissue-of-origin impact the amount, length and position of somatic copy number alterations in cancer.

    Melanoma: Accelerating cancer without mutations

    Douglas E Brash
    Mice get melanoma faster when they have common, inherited variants in a few genes that control cell-wide changes but also respond to the environment.

    The Notch-mediated hyperplasia circuitry in Drosophila reveals a Src-JNK signaling axis

    Diana M Ho et al.
    A diverse group of modifier genes, including the proto-oncogene Src, cooperate with Notch specifically to control cell proliferation.

    Establishment and maintenance of motor neuron identity via temporal modularity in terminal selector function

    Yinan Li et al.
    The terminal selector-type transcription factor UNC-3/Ebf partially modifies the suite of its target genes at different life stages to establish and maintain the identity of C. elegans motor neurons.

    Philosophy of Biology: The analysis of living systems can generate both knowledge and illusions

    Antony M Jose
    By thinking about experimental techniques in terms of six broad approaches – perturbation, visualization, substitution, characterization, reconstitution, and simulation – researchers may be able to generate more reliable inferences.
