    Transgenerational dynamics of rDNA copy number in Drosophila male germline stem cells

    Kevin L Lu et al.
    rDNA copy number is shown to dynamically change during aging and through generations, and is actively maintained in male germline of Drosophila.

    Intergenerational epigenetic inheritance of cancer susceptibility in mammals

    Bluma J Lesch et al.
    Genetic knockout of the histone demethylase Kdm6a in the mouse germ line leads to elevated cancer incidence in genetically wild type offspring.

    Transition between fermentation and respiration determines history-dependent behavior in fluctuating carbon sources

    Bram Cerulus et al.
    Live-cell microscopy and genome-wide screens reveal how slow transitions in metabolism can underlie metabolic memory, providing a model for organisms demonstrating similar history-dependent behaviour and routes to improve industrial microbes.

    Hyperosmotic stress memory in Arabidopsis is mediated by distinct epigenetically labile sites in the genome and is restricted in the male germline by DNA glycosylase activity

    Anjar Wibowo et al.
    Transient adaptation to environmental fluctuations in plants is mediated through discrete epigenetic changes.

    H3K9me3 is required for inheritance of small RNAs that target a unique subset of newly evolved genes

    Itamar Lev et al.
    In Caenorhabditis elegans histone methylation (H3K9me3) controls the synthesis of heritable small RNAs in a gene-specific manner and thus enables 'flagging' of newly-acquired genes.

    Predominance of cis-regulatory changes in parallel expression divergence of sticklebacks

    Jukka-Pekka Verta, Felicity C Jones
    Cis-regulation such as enhancers and promoters plays a major role in parallel gene expression divergence and has features that make it a well-poised substrate for adaptive evolution.

    Conversion of random X-inactivation to imprinted X-inactivation by maternal PRC2

    Clair Harris et al.
    The PRC2 Polycomb complex made in the mouse oocyte prevents transcriptional inactivation of the maternal X-chromosome in the early embryo.

    Regulation of rice root development by a retrotransposon acting as a microRNA sponge

    Jungnam Cho, Jerzy Paszkowski
    Retrotransposon-derived messenger RNA plays a critical role in rice root development via sequestration of miR171, which suggests a novel trans-acting regulation by transposable elements.
