    Identification of neural progenitor cells and their progeny reveals long distance migration in the developing octopus brain

    Astrid Deryckere et al.
    Neurogenic progenitor cells surrounding the eye placode generate neurons that migrate over long distances to the developing octopus brain.

    anTraX, a software package for high-throughput video tracking of color-tagged insects

    Asaf Gal et al.
    anTraX is an algorithm and software package that facilitates automated analyses of insect social behavior in species and experimental settings that are not accessible with currently existing technology.

    Evolutionary shifts in taste coding in the fruit pest Drosophila suzukii

    Hany KM Dweck et al.
    The evolutionary transition of the agricultural pest Drosophila suzukii to egg laying on ripe fruits was paralleled with several gustatory innovations.

    Myogenic vasoconstriction requires G12/G13 and LARG to maintain local and systemic vascular resistance

    Ramesh Chennupati et al.
    Genetic mouse models identify a critical mechanism of myogenic vasoconstriction and reveal the in vivo function of myogenic autoregulation in protecting from organ overperfusion and in maintaining vascular resistance.

    Image content is more important than Bouma’s Law for scene metamers

    Thomas SA Wallis et al.
    Peripheral appearance models emphasising pooling processes that depend on retinal eccentricity will instead need to explore input-dependent grouping and segmentation.

    Carbon recovery dynamics following disturbance by selective logging in Amazonian forests

    Camille Piponiot et al.
    Carbon recovery in Amazonian forests disturbed by selective logging is higher in the Guiana Shield and in the west, and is mainly shaped by the carbon gain of trees that survived the disturbance.

    Ongoing resolution of duplicate gene functions shapes the diversification of a metabolic network

    Meihua Christina Kuang et al.
    Recent functional changes in ancient duplicate genes led to the evolution of divergent regulatory and metabolic strategies by the GALactose gene networks of two yeast species.

    Relief of autoinhibition by conformational switch explains enzyme activation by a catalytically dead paralog

    Oleg A Volkov et al.
    A catalytically dead paralog activates its cognate enzyme through an allosteric mechanism that combined structural and phylogenomic analysis indicates arose through acquisition of a dimerization domain, suggesting a general model for how complex allostery evolves.

    Bidirectional interactions between indomethacin and the murine intestinal microbiota

    Xue Liang et al.
    Indomethacin, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, alters the composition of the intestinal microbiota, and the intestinal microbiota affect the pharmacokinetics of indomethacin.

    Relationship between changing malaria burden and low birth weight in sub-Saharan Africa: A difference-in-differences study via a pair-of-pairs approach

    Siyu Heng et al.
    A novel pair-of-pairs matching approach finds that community-level reductions in malaria burden can potentially substantially reduce the low birth weight rate in sub-Saharan Africa, particularly among firstborns.
