    Repeated losses of PRDM9-directed recombination despite the conservation of PRDM9 across vertebrates

    Zachary Baker et al.
    PRDM9 is widely conserved across vertebrates yet has been lost numerous times, as has its role in directing meiotic recombination.

    Resegmentation is an ancestral feature of the gnathostome vertebral skeleton

    Katharine E Criswell, J Andrew Gillis
    Shared complexities of backbone segmentation between cartilaginous fishes and tetrapods originate much earlier in vertebrate evolution than previously thought.

    Transcriptome analysis illuminates the nature of the intracellular interaction in a vertebrate-algal symbiosis

    John A Burns et al.
    The endosymbiosis between an alga and the spotted salamander shows several parallels to invertebrate-algal symbioses as well as to pathogen associations in vertebrate animals.

    Rarity is a more reliable indicator of land-use impacts on soil invertebrate communities than other diversity metrics

    Andrew Dopheide et al.
    Rarity metrics reveal pervasive negative impacts of agricultural land use on soil invertebrate communities, whereas widely-used richness and diversity metrics underestimate the magnitude of these impacts.

    Epigenetic conservation at gene regulatory elements revealed by non-methylated DNA profiling in seven vertebrates

    Hannah K Long et al.
    Islands of non-methylated DNA are shown to perform a similar epigenetic role in many different vertebrate species.

    The whale shark genome reveals patterns of vertebrate gene family evolution

    Milton Tan et al.
    The new whale shark genome assembly represents the best gapless chondrichthyan genome assembly yet, and comparative genomic analyses provide insights into the evolution of vertebrate genome origins, immunity, and gigantism.

    A Tgfbr1/Snai1-dependent developmental module at the core of vertebrate axial elongation

    André Dias et al.
    During vertebrate axial extension, the tail bud originates from the activation of a developmental module in a subset of axial progenitors, concurrent but different to gastrulation.

    De novo synthesis of a sunscreen compound in vertebrates

    Andrew R Osborn et al.
    Many vertebrates are able to synthesize a sunscreen compound de novo and the pathway involved can be used for heterologous production of the compound in yeast.

    Fundamental constraints in synchronous muscle limit superfast motor control in vertebrates

    Andrew F Mead et al.
    Vertebrate superfast muscles employ similar excitation–contraction strategies but distinct myosin heavy chain genes to allow superfast performance, revealing a maximum speed that cannot be overcome without sacrificing neural control.

    Mammalian genes induce partially reprogrammed pluripotent stem cells in non-mammalian vertebrate and invertebrate species

    Ricardo Antonio Rosselló et al.
    Cells from vertebrate and invertebrate model systems can be reprogrammed into stem-like cells using mouse genes.
