Philosophy of Biology: Characterizing causality in cancer
Elena Rondeau et al.
Ideas about causality from philosophy can help scientists to better understand how cancerous tumors grow and spread in the body.
Biochemistry and Chemical Biology
Cell Signaling: Learning from ancestors
Suk ho Hong, Neel H Shah
Applying ancestral sequence reconstruction techniques to protein kinases reveals the mutations that underlie different modes of activation.
Microbiology and Infectious Disease
Research: A comprehensive and quantitative exploration of thousands of viral genomes
Gita Mahmoudabadi, Rob Phillips
A compendium of critical genomic numbers for viruses through the lenses of different viral classification systems.
Chromosomes and Gene Expression
Oncogenesis: Taking the brakes off telomerase
Kamila Naxerova, Stephen J Elledge
Point of View: Telling it like it is
Following a year of public engagement activities associated with the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures, Alison Woollard explains why scientists need to communicate with the public.
The Natural History of Model Organisms: Insights into the evolution of social systems and species from baboon studies
Julia Fischer et al.
Wild baboons are an excellent model to study complex evolutionary processes such as speciation and hybridization, as well as the links between sociality, longevity and reproductive success.
The Natural History of Model Organisms:
, an 'instant' fish from an ephemeral habitat
Martin Reichard, Matej Polačik
The turquoise killifish from ephemeral pools in African savannah combines extremely short lifespan with a standard vertebrate body plan – ideal attributes for a laboratory animal.
Human Biology and Medicine
Point of View: Predictive regulation and human design
Why does the human regulatory system, which evolution tuned for small satisfactions, now constantly demand 'more'?
Science Forum: Challenges in validating candidate therapeutic targets in cancer
Jeffrey Settleman et al.
More than 30 published articles have suggested that a protein kinase called MELK is an attractive therapeutic target in human cancer, but three recent reports describe compelling evidence that it is not.
Human Biology and Medicine
Point of View: A transatlantic perspective on 20 emerging issues in biological engineering
Bonnie C Wintle et al.
Horizon scanning has been used to identify opportunities and risks presented by 20 emerging issues in the field of biological engineering.
