    A genetic selection reveals functional metastable structures embedded in a toxin-encoding mRNA

    Sara Masachis et al.
    A genetic selection of toxicity suppressors coupled to high-throughput sequencing has captured metastable RNA structures that co-transcriptionally inhibit the translation of a bacterial toxin.

    Uncovering the basis of protein-protein interaction specificity with a combinatorially complete library

    Thuy-Lan V Lite et al.
    A generalizable approach to understanding the logic of molecular recognition reveals the contributions of individual residues to the specificity of protein-protein interactions.

    Sequence co-evolution gives 3D contacts and structures of protein complexes

    Thomas A Hopf et al.
    Interactions in protein complexes can be predicted from evolutionary information from genomic sequences.

    Robust and accurate prediction of residue–residue interactions across protein interfaces using evolutionary information

    Sergey Ovchinnikov et al.
    Co-evolving residue pairs in the different components of a protein complex almost always make contact across the protein–protein interface, thus providing powerful restraints for the modeling of protein complexes.

    Acknowledging selection at sub-organismal levels resolves controversy on pro-cooperation mechanisms

    Wenying Shou
    Building on previous work (Momeni et al., 2013), it is shown that recognizing the hierarchical organization of biological systems resolves the ongoing controversy on pro-cooperation mechanisms.

    Density-dependent resistance protects Legionella pneumophila from its own antimicrobial metabolite, HGA

    Tera C Levin et al.
    Legionella pneumophila can be inhibited by its own antimicrobial, HGA (homogentisic acid), but its density-dependent resistance to HGA restricts the potential for self-harm.

    Selfing is the safest sex for Caenorhabditis tropicalis

    Luke M Noble et al.
    Out breeding depression in Caenorhabditis tropicalis is due to common maternal-offspring incompatibilities that interact with a highly heterogeneous genetic background and may provide a short-term advantage to inbreeding.

    The Wolbachia cytoplasmic incompatibility enzyme CidB targets nuclear import and protamine-histone exchange factors

    John Frederick Beckmann et al.
    Genetic and proteomic screening with Wolbachia's CidB enzyme reveal the mechanisms and targets of cytoplasmic incompatibility (CI).

    Kasugamycin potentiates rifampicin and limits emergence of resistance in Mycobacterium tuberculosis by specifically decreasing mycobacterial mistranslation

    Swarnava Chaudhuri et al.
    Kasugamycin potentiates rifampicin killing of Mycobacterium tuberculosis by targeting adaptive mistranslation.

    A broadly distributed toxin family mediates contact-dependent antagonism between gram-positive bacteria

    John C Whitney et al.
    Diverse LXG toxins delivered by the Esx pathway function as mediators of contact-dependent interbacterial antagonism within and between Gram-positive bacterial species.
