    Mechano-redox control of integrin de-adhesion

    Freda Passam et al.
    Ligand binding, force and chemistry combine to control the function of a cell surface receptor.

    A time-stamp mechanism may provide temporal information necessary for egocentric to allocentric spatial transformations

    Avner Wallach et al.
    A novel neural mechanism for precise, unbiased estimation of time intervals in the thalamus of electric fish is likely used for computing distance between object encounters.

    Zygotic gene activation in the chicken occurs in two waves, the first involving only maternally derived genes

    Young Sun Hwang et al.
    In Aves, the first wave of transcription is derived exclusively from the maternal genome.

    Natural variation in sugar tolerance associates with changes in signaling and mitochondrial ribosome biogenesis

    Richard G Melvin et al.
    The optimal macronutrient composition, macronutrient space, varies strongly between closely related species and is determined by genetic changes in regulatory genes that globally reprogram gene expression profiles of metabolic pathways.

    Firefly genomes illuminate parallel origins of bioluminescence in beetles

    Timothy R Fallon et al.
    The first genomic view of beetle luciferase evolution indicates evolutionary independence of luciferase between fireflies and click-beetles, and provide valuable datasets which will accelerate the discovery of new biotechnological tools.

    Interneuronal mechanisms of hippocampal theta oscillations in a full-scale model of the rodent CA1 circuit

    Marianne J Bezaire et al.
    Spontaneous theta oscillations and interneuron-specific phase preferences emerge spontaneously in a full-scale model of the isolated hippocampal CA1 subfield, corroborating and extending recent experimental findings.

    Simultaneous enumeration of cancer and immune cell types from bulk tumor gene expression data

    Julien Racle et al.
    A novel method predicts cancer and immune cell types from bulk tumor gene expression data with the ability to consider uncharacterized and possibly highly variable cell types, which is validated in human genome.

    Structural and functional properties of a probabilistic model of neuronal connectivity in a simple locomotor network

    Andrea Ferrario et al.
    A new probabilistic model of connectivity reveals the structural and functional properties of the neural networks controlling locomotion in many individual tadpoles.

    Mutations in L-type amino acid transporter-2 support SLC7A8 as a novel gene involved in age-related hearing loss

    Meritxell Espino Guarch et al.
    SLC7A8 a neutral amino acid transporter has a key role in the maintenance of hearing during aging and its absence causes early onset of hearing loss.
