    Controlling gene activation by enhancers through a drug-inducible topological insulator

    Taro Tsujimura et al.
    A novel synthetic DNA cassette of CTCF-binding sites combined with the drug-controllable induction system of heterochromatin enabled switchable blocking of chromatin conformation and gene-enhancer interaction.

    Multiple interfaces between a serine recombinase and an enhancer control site-specific DNA inversion

    Meghan M McLean et al.
    The structure of the recombination complex responsible for flagellar antigen switching in Salmonella enterica, and the mechanism that regulates the site-specific DNA inversion reaction, have been determined.

    Structural basis for Scc3-dependent cohesin recruitment to chromatin

    Yan Li et al.
    The Cohesin subunit Scc3 contains a hook-shaped domain that binds to DNA substrate, thus revealing that Cohesin-chromatin transactions are driven not only by topological interactions, but also by direct protein-DNA contacts.

    Determining cellular CTCF and cohesin abundances to constrain 3D genome models

    Claudia Cattoglio et al.
    Absolute quantification of CTCF and cohesin reveals quantitative constraints on 3D genome organization and illuminates the molecular architecture of the cohesin complex.

    Generative modeling of multi-mapping reads with mHi-C advances analysis of Hi-C studies

    Ye Zheng et al.
    A statistical model rescues multi-mapping reads with high accuracy and demonstrates their impact in all facets of the analysis of genome-wide high throughput conformation capture datasets.

    A stochastic epigenetic switch controls the dynamics of T-cell lineage commitment

    Kenneth KH Ng et al.
    The timing and outcome of mammalian cell lineage decisions can be controlled by slow, stochastic events on individual regulatory gene loci.

    Interplay of cell dynamics and epithelial tension during morphogenesis of the Drosophila pupal wing

    Raphaël Etournay et al.
    Autonomous patterns of cell contraction in the context of localized apical extracellular matrix constraints specify tissue stresses that reshape the wing epithelium.

    Transport of DNA within cohesin involves clamping on top of engaged heads by Scc2 and entrapment within the ring by Scc3

    James E Collier et al.
    Rigorous biochemical and structural analyses reveal the precise topology of cohesin's association with DNA and suggest a mechanism for how DNA is transported inside the ring.

    Uniting functional network topology and oscillations in the fronto-parietal single unit network of behaving primates

    Benjamin Dann et al.
    Oscillatory synchronized hub neurons coordinate neural network activity across multiple brain areas.

    The manifold structure of limb coordination in walking Drosophila

    Brian D DeAngelis et al.
    During walking and turning, the fruit fly Drosophila uses variable limb coordination patterns, which exist on a low-dimensional, continuous manifold.
