    How oscillating aerodynamic forces explain the timbre of the hummingbird’s hum and other animals in flapping flight

    Ben J Hightower et al.
    A first-principles acoustics model reveals how the acoustic spectrum generated by flapping wings originates from oscillating aerodynamic forces, and is validated by in vivo aerodynamic force measurements and acoustic holography.

    Dendritic nonlinearities are tuned for efficient spike-based computations in cortical circuits

    Balázs B Ujfalussy et al.
    Dendrites combine the inputs that they receive from other neurons using calculations that have been optimized for those particular input patterns.

    Drift and termination of spiral waves in optogenetically modified cardiac tissue at sub-threshold illumination

    Sayedeh Hussaini et al.
    Excitability gradients in heart tissue, imposed by structured sub-threshold optogenetic stimulation, induce drift and termination of spiral waves, thus providing an explanation for successful optogenetic defibrillation in small animal hearts.

    Robo recruitment of the Wave regulatory complex plays an essential and conserved role in midline repulsion

    Karina Chaudhari et al.
    Axon repulsion in response to the midline repellent slit depends on an evolutionary conserved interaction between the Roundabout receptor and the wave regulatory complex.

    Complete dissection of transcription elongation reveals slow translocation of RNA polymerase II in a linear ratchet mechanism

    Manchuta Dangkulwanich et al.
    Quantification of all the major on- and off-pathway kinetic parameters in the transcription elongation cycle reveals that RNA polymerase II translocates slowly in a linear, non-branched Brownian ratchet mechanism.

    Convergent organization of aberrant MYB complex controls oncogenic gene expression in acute myeloid leukemia

    Sumiko Takao et al.
    Definition of leukemia gene expression mechanisms reveals general principles of cancer gene control and offers a pharmacologic strategy for its therapeutic reprogramming.

    Structure of the human BBSome core complex

    Björn Udo Klink et al.
    The structure of the human BBSome explains how the subunits interact with each other and how disease-causing mutations hamper this interaction.

    CM1-driven assembly and activation of yeast γ-tubulin small complex underlies microtubule nucleation

    Axel F Brilot et al.
    Cryo-EM structures reveal that the conserved CM1 motif drives γTuRC assembly by bridging adjacent γTuSC.

    The structure of the yeast Ctf3 complex

    Stephen M Hinshaw et al.
    The cryo-EM structure of the yeast Ctf3 complex enables near-atomic modeling of most Ctf19c/CCAN factors and their interactions.
