    Synchronization of oscillatory growth prepares fungal hyphae for fusion

    Valentin Wernet, Marius Kriegler ... Reinhard Fischer
    Fungal hyphae constantly undergo signal oscillations, comparable to a cell 'monologue' until they meet another hypha with which they then coordinate signal oscillations and transit into a cell-to-cell dialogue.

    A CRISPR-based rapid DNA repositioning strategy and the early intranuclear life of HSV-1

    Juan Xiang, Chaoyang Fan ... Pei Xu
    An inducible two-component CRISPR-based platform that rapidly repositions HSV-1 genomes to the nuclear edge unveils intranuclear space heterogeneity for the incoming viral genomes and dynamic stages of the host-virus interplay during early infection.
