    Lotka-Volterra pairwise modeling fails to capture diverse pairwise microbial interactions

    Babak Momeni et al.
    With mathematical modeling being an important source of insight for microbial communities, we may need to move beyond commonly-used pairwise models that do not capture microbial interactions.

    Mechanisms of organelle biogenesis govern stochastic fluctuations in organelle abundance

    Shankar Mukherji, Erin K O'Shea
    A systematic comparison of experimentally measured and theoretically predicted magnitudes of organelle abundance fluctuations suggests that budding yeast produces the maximum level of variability in organelle abundance that can be generated by organelle biogenesis pathways.

    Cis-activation in the Notch signaling pathway

    Nagarajan Nandagopal et al.
    Activation of Notch receptors by ligands in the same cell (cis-activation) is a prevalent and functional mode of signaling in the Notch pathway, and co-exists with trans-activation and cis-inhibition.

    Hexameric and pentameric complexes of the ExbBD energizer in the Ton system

    Saori Maki-Yonekura et al.
    Crystallography and single particle cryo-EM reveal hexameric and pentameric structures of the ExbBD energizer in the Ton system and oligomeric transition, which provides a unique working mechanism and a new vision of dynamic membrane biology.

    Perturbation biology nominates upstream–downstream drug combinations in RAF inhibitor resistant melanoma cells

    Anil Korkut et al.
    Data-driven systems biology models of signaling predict cellular response to untested perturbations and can nominate drug combinations to overcome drug resistance in cancer cells.

    Quorums enable optimal pooling of independent judgements in biological systems

    James AR Marshall et al.
    Consideration of signal detection theory shows how decision ecology relates to optimal collective decisions, helping explain the prevalence of quorum-sensing in even the simplest collective systems, such as bacterial communities.

    Systems Biology: A new way to build cell lineages

    Xiuwei Zhang, Nir Yosef
    A combination of single-cell techniques and computational analysis enables the simultaneous discovery of cell states, lineage relationships and the genes that control developmental decisions.

    Adequate immune response ensured by binary IL-2 and graded CD25 expression in a murine transfer model

    Franziska Fuhrmann et al.
    A murine adoptive transfer model shows that binary IL-2 and graded CD25 expression tailor the T helper cell response to the antigen amount in vivo.

    Digital signaling decouples activation probability and population heterogeneity

    Ryan A Kellogg et al.
    Digital NF-κB signaling achieves orthogonal control over the probability of activation (percentage of activated cells) and dynamic response heterogeneity in the population via the area and shape of the input profile.
