    A multi-layered and dynamic apical extracellular matrix shapes the vulva lumen in Caenorhabditis elegans

    Jennifer D Cohen et al.
    Confocal imaging, electron microscopy, and genetic perturbations provide an unprecedented view of a complex and dynamic luminal matrix that determines tube shape during morphogenesis.

    Mutations: A larger target leads to faster evolution

    Bing Yang, Scott A Rifkin
    The speed at which a cell fate decision in nematode worms evolves is due to the number of genes that control the decision, rather than to a high mutation rate.

    Gene-free methodology for cell fate dynamics during development

    Francis Corson, Eric D Siggia
    Mathematical methods based on geometry that directly embody the developmental concepts of competency, commitment, and determination provide succinct descriptions of morphogenesis and allow quantitative predictions from fits to sparse genetic data in Caenorhabditis elegans.

    A broad mutational target explains a fast rate of phenotypic evolution

    Fabrice Besnard et al.
    A broad mutational target is the cause of the high mutational variance and corresponding fast phenotypic evolutionary rate in P3.p cell fate in Caenorhabditis nematodes.

    Whole-organism behavioral profiling reveals a role for dopamine in state-dependent motor program coupling in C. elegans

    Nathan Cermak et al.
    Simultaneous quantification of each of the main motor programs in the roundworm C. elegans yields new insights into the neural mechanisms that coordinate animal behavior.

    A branched heterochronic pathway directs juvenile-to-adult transition through two LIN-29 isoforms

    Chiara Azzi et al.
    Distinct regulation endows two isoforms of the transcription factor LIN-29 with distinct functions to achieve coordinated execution of separate juvenile-to-adult transition events in Caenorhabditis elegans..

    The CHORD protein CHP-1 regulates EGF receptor trafficking and signaling in C. elegans and in human cells

    Andrea Haag et al.
    The co-chaperone CHORDC1 is specifically required for epidermal growth factor receptor trafficking and signaling in Caenorhabditis elegans and in human cells.

    Geometric models for robust encoding of dynamical information into embryonic patterns

    Laurent Jutras-Dubé et al.
    Propagation, speed and shapes of genetic waves of expression during development can be modeled by a simple interplay between two transcriptional modules (dynamic/static), which explains robustness and precision of patterning.

    Extensive intraspecies cryptic variation in an ancient embryonic gene regulatory network

    Yamila N Torres Cleuren et al.
    Quantitative genetic analyses reveal remarkably broad genetic variation underlies the requirement for two critical regulatory inputs into a core embryonic gene regulatory network within one animal species.
