    Divergent acyl carrier protein decouples mitochondrial Fe-S cluster biogenesis from fatty acid synthesis in malaria parasites

    Seyi Falekun et al.
    Malaria parasites have simplified and adapted their mitochondrial metabolism to lack fatty acid synthesis but retain an unusual acyl carrier protein required for stability of the core iron-sulfur cluster biogenesis complex.

    Echolocating toothed whales use ultra-fast echo-kinetic responses to track evasive prey

    Heather Vance et al.
    Echolocating toothed whales can detect and react to sudden prey movements during close approaches with speeds similar to ultra-fast tracking responses in human vision.

    Virophages and retrotransposons colonize the genomes of a heterotrophic flagellate

    Thomas Hackl et al.
    Mutualistic viruses called virophages are common genome inhabitants of a marine protist, where they may protect host populations from giant viruses.

    Multicolor fluorescence fluctuation spectroscopy in living cells via spectral detection

    Valentin Dunsing et al.
    Fluorescence fluctuation spectroscopy is implemented for detection of up to four molecular species, allowing users to quantify molecular interactions and stoichiometry of multicomponent complexes in live cells, in a wide range of biological processes, from membrane signaling to viral assembly.

    Little evidence that Eurasian jays protect their caches by responding to cues about a conspecific’s desire and visual perspective

    Piero Amodio et al.
    Across five experiments, Eurasian jays’ caching behaviour provides little evidence of the ability to integrate cues about a potential pilferer’s visual perspective and desire and, challenging previous findings, to respond to either of the two social cues independently.

    Total parasite biomass but not peripheral parasitaemia is associated with endothelial and haematological perturbations in Plasmodium vivax patients

    João L Silva-Filho et al.
    Data exploring host and parasite signatures in the peripheral blood indicate that total parasite biomass is a better predictor of P. vivax-induced host responses and pathogenesis than peripheral parasitemia.

    First-principles model of optimal translation factors stoichiometry

    Jean-Benoît Lalanne, Gene-Wei Li
    A parsimonious biophysical model correctly predicts the conserved expression stoichiometry of core bacterial mRNA translation factors, providing intuitive and quantitative design principles for in vivo pathway construction.

    Integrated evaluation of telomerase activation and telomere maintenance across cancer cell lines

    Kevin Hu et al.
    Comprehensive analysis of telomere maintenance from transcriptomic, epigenetic, and loss-of-function profiles of cancer cell lines elucidates features of telomere regulation in cancer.

    Decreased recent adaptation at human mendelian disease genes as a possible consequence of interference between advantageous and deleterious variants

    Chenlu Di et al.
    Harmful genetic variants at mendelian disease genes slow down adaptation, by interfering with the spread of adaptive variants in a population.

    The structure of behavioral variation within a genotype

    Zachary Werkhoven et al.
    Multidimensional analysis of data from high-throughput behavioral assays reveals many independent axes of behavioral variation among inbred animals reared in the same environment.
