    Spontaneous mutations and the origin and maintenance of quantitative genetic variation

    Wen Huang et al.
    Whole genome DNA sequence analysis, genome wide gene expression and complex organismal phenotypes in Drosophila mutation accumulation lines provide a robust estimate of the spontaneous mutation rate and mutational effects.

    Genetic basis of sRNA quantitative variation analyzed using an experimental population derived from an elite rice hybrid

    Jia Wang et al.
    The expression of small RNAs (or sRNAs) is regulated not only by mRNA expression, but also by their own regulatory elements and by sRNA biogenesis genes.

    Rare variants contribute disproportionately to quantitative trait variation in yeast

    Joshua S Bloom et al.
    Rare, evolutionarily recent variants have larger effect sizes and are more likely to decrease fitness, providing evidence that quantitative traits in yeast have evolved under purifying selection.

    Ordered patterning of the sensory system is susceptible to stochastic features of gene expression

    Ritika Giri et al.
    How gene expression noise is regulated is critical for cell fate and tissue patterning.

    Phenotypic and molecular evolution across 10,000 generations in laboratory budding yeast populations

    Milo S Johnson et al.
    Experimentally evolved yeast populations increase in fitness predictably but do not divide into coexisting lineages or dramatically increase their mutation rates after 10,000 generations.

    An ABA-GA bistable switch can account for natural variation in the variability of Arabidopsis seed germination time

    Katie Abley et al.
    Arabidopsis shows extensive genetic diversity in germination time distributions, which can be explained by the underlying ABA/GA network functioning as a noisy bistable switch.

    Local genetic context shapes the function of a gene regulatory network

    Anna Nagy-Staron et al.
    The phenotype of a gene regulatory network depends both qualitatively and quantitatively on the local genetic context of its individual components and cannot necessarily be predicted solely from network's topology.

    Assembly and positioning of actomyosin rings by contractility and planar cell polarity

    Ivonne M Sehring et al.
    Contractility wins over the polarity pathway in a tug-of-war to position a cytokinesis-like actomyosin ring at the equator of notochord cells.

    A community-maintained standard library of population genetic models

    Jeffrey R Adrion et al.
    The stdpopsim library, a community-driven open source project, is presented which provides easy access to a standard catalog of published simulation models for population genetics aimed at field-wide standardization.

    Individual differences in honey bee behavior enabled by plasticity in brain gene regulatory networks

    Beryl M Jones et al.
    Integration of automatic behavioral tracking with brain molecular profiling reveals the role of gene regulatory network plasticity in the regulation of behavioral phenotypes.
