    The CNS connectome of a tadpole larva of Ciona intestinalis (L.) highlights sidedness in the brain of a chordate sibling

    Kerrianne Ryan et al.
    Serial-section EM analysis uncovers the CNS connectome of a Ciona larva, the second of any entire nervous system, and exposes left-right asymmetries in its synaptic circuits.

    Auditory experience controls the maturation of song discrimination and sexual response in Drosophila

    Xiaodong Li et al.
    Auditory experience of a species-specific courtship song in developing Drosophila tunes adult song perception and resultant sexual behavior more selective.

    Inter-individual stereotypy of the Platynereis larval visual connectome

    Nadine Randel et al.
    Building on previous work (Randel et al., 2014), a comparison of the visual neuronal circuitry in two Platynereis larvae, made using serial electron microscopic reconstructions, reveals a high level of stereotypy in the synaptic connectivity.

    Evolution of asymmetric gamete signaling and suppressed recombination at the mating type locus

    Zena Hadjivasiliou, Andrew Pomiankowski
    Selection for asymmetric signalling between gametes explains the very origins of sexual asymmetry as seen in mating-types with morphologically similar but self-incompatible gametes.

    Connectomics of the zebrafish's lateral-line neuromast reveals wiring and miswiring in a simple microcircuit

    Eliot Dow et al.
    The technique of serial blockface scanning electron microscopy, which permits the complete reconstruction of neuronal structures, allows comparison of the detailed "wiring diagrams" of lateral-line receptor organs in wild-type and mutant zebrafish.

    Meta-Research: Centralized scientific communities are less likely to generate replicable results

    Valentin Danchev et al.
    Analysis of data on drug-gene interactions suggests that decentralized collaboration will increase the robustness of scientific findings in biomedical research.
  1. Meta-Research: How significant are the public dimensions of faculty work in review, promotion and tenure documents?

    Juan P Alperin et al.
    An analysis of review, promotion and tenure documents from 129 US and Canadian universities suggests institutions could better fulfill their public missions by changing how they incentivize the public dimensions of faculty work.

    Point of View: Data science for the scientific life cycle

    Daphne Ezer, Kirstie Whitaker
    Each stage of the scientific life cycle stands to benefit from the introduction of data science techniques.
