    The Natural History of Model Organisms: Insights into mammalian biology from the wild house mouse Mus musculus

    Megan Phifer-Rixey, Michael W Nachman
    Studies of the house mouse Mus musculus have provided important insights into mammalian biology, and efforts to study wild house mice and to create new inbred strains from wild populations have the potential to increase its usefulness as a model system.

  1. Helping the neighbours: an interview with Meredith Schuman

    Meredith Schuman was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, and is currently leading a junior research group at the German Center for Integrative Biodiversity Research (iDiv), where she investigates the ecological roles of genes in populations of the wild tobacco plant Nicotiana attenuata. She hopes to find a tenure-track position in molecular chemical ecology when funding for her current position ends in 2017. Her hobbies include reading, writing, running, hiking, bodyweight training and travel, and she loves teaching.

    Modulation of the Erwinia ligand-gated ion channel (ELIC) and the 5-HT3 receptor via a common vestibule site

    Marijke Brams et al.
    Development of nanobodies against a model pentameric ligand-gated ion channel demonstrates they can be functionally active as negative or positive allosteric modulators and offers opportunities for future drug development.

    Natural variation reveals that intracellular distribution of ELF3 protein is associated with function in the circadian clock

    Muhammad Usman Anwer et al.
    In Arabidopsis, a natural variant of the ELF3 protein, which originated in Central Asia, is less likely to accumulate in the nucleus, and causes the circadian clock to run faster and be less responsive to environmental cues.
