    An open-source, high-performance tool for automated sleep staging

    Raphael Vallat, Matthew P Walker
    A robust automatic sleep-staging algorithm offers a high level of accuracy matching that of typical human interscorer agreement.

    Gut bacterial aggregates as living gels

    Brandon H Schlomann, Raghuveer Parthasarathy
    A theory of gut bacterial aggregation produces a cluster size distribution that matches that of several strains observed in zebrafish, suggesting principles generally applicable to the vertebrate gut.

    Utility of polygenic embryo screening for disease depends on the selection strategy

    Todd Lencz et al.
    Preimplantation screening of embryos using polygenic risk scores may substantially reduce risk for a given complex disease, but this effect depends on several quantifiable factors and raises significant ethical issues.

    Secondary metabolites of Hülle cells mediate protection of fungal reproductive and overwintering structures against fungivorous animals

    Li Liu et al.
    Xanthones produced by the filamentous fungus Aspergillus nidulans protect its sexual structures from predation by arthropods.

    Linking functional and molecular mechanisms of host resilience to malaria infection

    Tsukushi Kamiya et al.
    With a data-driven mathematical modelling approach, within-host ecological information alone can provide clues on the mechanistic basis of diverse malaria infection outcomes.

    SARS-CoV-2 shedding dynamics across the respiratory tract, sex, and disease severity for adult and pediatric COVID-19

    Paul Z Chen et al.
    COVID-19 severity, rather than sex or age, predicts SARS-CoV-2 kinetics, and SARS-CoV-2 viral load from lower respiratory tract specimens may predict severe disease days before clinical deterioration for COVID-19 patients.

    A beta-glucosidase of an insect herbivore determines both toxicity and deterrence of a dandelion defense metabolite

    Meret Huber et al.
    An insect digestive enzyme metabolizes a plant defense compound and thereby modulates herbivore performance and host plant choice, which in turn may alter plant defense evolution in nature.

    ‘Fearful-place’ coding in the amygdala-hippocampal network

    Mi-Seon Kong et al.
    By recording simultaneous spike trains from fear-responsive basal amygdala (BA) and place-responsive dorsal hippocampus (dHPC) neurons in rats foraging for food in a risky predatory situation, a novel BA-dHPC circuit coding mechanism for interfacing danger and place information was revealed.

    mRNA vaccination in people over 80 years of age induces strong humoral immune responses against SARS-CoV-2 with cross neutralization of P.1 Brazilian variant

    Helen Parry et al.
    The BNT162b2 mRNA COVID-19 vaccine is highly effective at generating immune responses in people over the age of 80 years and provides good cross neutralization of the P.1 gamma variant of concern.
    1. Neuroscience

    Individual history of winning and hierarchy landscape influence stress susceptibility in mice

    Katherine B LeClair et al.
    Socially dominant mice, unlike subordinates, are protected from displaying a common stress-associated behavioral deficit, social avoidance, following exposure to multiple kinds of chronic stress.
