    Single-cell RNA-seq reveals hidden transcriptional variation in malaria parasites

    Adam J Reid et al.
    Plasmodium parasite transcription shifts dramatically along asexual development, and transmission stages variably express important immune evasion genes, suggesting much interesting biology has until now been hidden by bulk analyses.

    Common virulence gene expression in adult first-time infected malaria patients and severe cases

    J Stephan Wichers et al.
    Parasites with pathogenic variant surface antigens are common in adult malaria patients with a naive immune status.

    TRF1 averts chromatin remodelling, recombination and replication dependent-break induced replication at mouse telomeres

    Rosa Maria Porreca et al.
    TRF1 suppresses replication fork stalling, which triggers break induced replication at telomeres associated with DNA damage response, alteration in the telomere chromatin environment, and re-localisation of telomeres to PML bodies.

    Distinct ‘safe zones’ at the nuclear envelope ensure robust replication of heterochromatic chromosome regions

    Hani Ebrahimi et al.
    The nuclear periphery houses compositionally and functionally distinct domains, one of which provides a 'safe zone' for replication and reassembly of heterochromatic genome regions.

    Modifications at K31 on the lateral surface of histone H4 contribute to genome structure and expression in apicomplexan parasites

    Fabien Sindikubwabo et al.
    A versatile acetylation-methylation switch at lysine 31 on the lateral surface of histone H4 contributes to chromatin structure in apicomplexan parasites.

    The dynamic three-dimensional organization of the diploid yeast genome

    Seungsoo Kim et al.
    Yeast homologous chromosomes exhibit condition-specific mitotic pairing at both global and local scales.

    Heterochromatin assembly by interrupted Sir3 bridges across neighboring nucleosomes

    Reza Behrouzi et al.
    Cooperative association of a histone-binding complex with pairs of appropriately modified nucleosomes, which form fundamental units of binding, mediates selective heterochromatin assembly and spreading.

    Centromere deletion in Cryptococcus deuterogattii leads to neocentromere formation and chromosome fusions

    Klaas Schotanus, Joseph Heitman
    Centromere deletion in Cryptococcus deuterogattii results in neocentromeres, which span actively expressed genes and at elevated temperatures cen10∆ mutants are unstable leading to chromosome fusion and silencing of the neocentromere.

    NuRD and CAF-1-mediated silencing of the D4Z4 array is modulated by DUX4-induced MBD3L proteins

    Amy E Campbell et al.
    CRISPR/Cas9 engineered locus-specific proteomics leads to the identification of NuRD, CAF-1, and MBD3L2 as regulators of the early embryonic transcription factor DUX4.

    Pervasive epigenetic effects of Drosophila euchromatic transposable elements impact their evolution

    Yuh Chwen G Lee, Gary H Karpen
    The ability of transposable elements to epigenetically influence adjacent genes impacts genome evolution by driving substantial variation in transposon numbers between species.
