  1. Point of View: When it comes to teaching and tenure it is time to walk the walk

    Andrew W Murray et al.
    Institutions should value teaching and service, and not just research, when considering faculty for promotion and tenure.
    1. Neuroscience

    Texture coarseness responsive neurons and their mapping in layer 2–3 of the rat barrel cortex in vivo

    Liora Garion et al.
    Neurons within rat somatosensory cortex are selective to texture and are spatially organized according to their texture preference.
  2. 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.

    MOF-associated complexes ensure stem cell identity and Xist repression

    Tomasz Chelmicki et al.
    Two complexes that contain the histone acetyl transferase MOF engage in a two-pronged approach to ensure the repression of X inactivation in mouse embryonic stem cells.
    1. Developmental Biology

    The Apelin receptor enhances Nodal/TGFβ signaling to ensure proper cardiac development

    Ashish R Deshwar et al.
    The Apelin receptor acts as a rheostat to ensure that the proper levels of Nodal signaling are achieved for proper cell fate specification at the onset of gastrulation, in particular for cardiac progenitor development.
  3. Scientific Publishing: Transparent reporting of research results in eLife

    M Dawn Teare
    Manuscripts should include all the experimental and statistical details that are needed to replicate the experiments and analyses reported in them.

    Meta-Research: Use of the Journal Impact Factor in academic review, promotion, and tenure evaluations

    Erin C McKiernan et al.
    Almost a quarter of faculty evaluation documents from US and Canadian universities mention Journal Impact Factor and often imply that it measures research quality.
    1. Chromosomes and Gene Expression

    Multiple kinases inhibit origin licensing and helicase activation to ensure reductive cell division during meiosis

    David V Phizicky et al.
    Meiotic cells inhibit two distinct steps of replisome assembly with multiple kinases to prevent DNA replication between Meiosis I and Meiosis II.
    1. Cell Biology

    Kinetochores attached to microtubule-ends are stabilised by Astrin bound PP1 to ensure proper chromosome segregation

    Duccio Conti et al.
    Human chromosome-microtubule attachments are stabilised by Astrin-mediated dynamic delivery of PP1 phosphatase to the attachment site, which ensures the normal segregation of chromosomes.
    1. Microbiology and Infectious Disease

    The ER membrane protein complex is required to ensure correct topology and stable expression of flavivirus polyproteins

    Ashley M Ngo et al.
    The ER membrane protein complex (EMC) facilitates the correct topology of the flavivirus non-structural proteins NS4A and NS4B at the ER membrane critical for viral replication.
