    Autocrine regulation of stomatal differentiation potential by EPF1 and ERECTA-LIKE1 ligand-receptor signaling

    Xingyun Qi et al.
    The stomatal precursor cell uses autocrine peptide-receptor kinase signaling to self-inhibit its differentiation potential in order to ensure proper stomatal development on the plant epidermis.

    Live tracking of moving samples in confocal microscopy for vertically grown roots

    Daniel von Wangenheim et al.
    A set of tools to image and track growing plant roots in optimized growing conditions within a vertical stage confocal microscope will open up new possibilities in research of root development.

    Catastrophic chromosomal restructuring during genome elimination in plants

    Ek Han Tan et al.
    Complex chromosomal rearrangements similar to those described in cancer and developmental syndromes occur in plants during postzygotic genome elimination, a centromeric-derived incompatibility.

    Arabidopsis 14-3-3 epsilon members contribute to polarity of PIN auxin carrier and auxin transport-related development

    Jutta Keicher et al.
    Conditional genetic inactivation of a highly conserved, ancestral subgroup of 14-3-3 proteins in Arabidopsis thaliana reveals fundamental roles in auxin transport-dependent plant development and post-Golgi trafficking processes.

    Lipid transfer from plants to arbuscular mycorrhiza fungi

    Andreas Keymer et al.
    Identification of two arbuscular mycorrhiza-specific lipid biosynthesis mutants and fatty acid transfer experiments reveal that host plant lipids are transferred to symbiotic fungi and needed for their development.

    Point of View: Competency-based assessment for the training of PhD students and early-career scientists

    Michael F Verderame et al.
    A method to assess the training of scientists, based on a set of 10 core competencies, is proposed.

    2018 Gairdner Awards: The past, present and future of light-gated ion channels and optogenetics

    Sheena A Josselyn
    Research into light-gated ion channels called channelrhodospins laid the foundations for the development of optogenetics, a technique that has gone on to revolutionize neuroscience.

  1. Research: Publication bias and the canonization of false facts

    Silas Boye Nissen et al.
    Publication bias, in which positive results are preferentially reported by authors and published by journals, can restrict the visibility of evidence against false claims and allow such claims to be canonized inappropriately as facts.
