    Genetic loci and metabolic states associated with murine epigenetic aging

    Khyobeni Mozhui et al.
    Age-dependent changes in DNA methylation are tightly coupled to the metabolic state, and is partly under genetic regulation, and longer lifespan is associated with lower epigenetic entropy at CpGs that increase in methylation with age.

    AP-2α and AP-2β cooperatively function in the craniofacial surface ectoderm to regulate chromatin and gene expression dynamics during facial development

    Eric Van Otterloo et al.
    In addition to a neural crest cell specific role, AP-2α and AP-2ß cooperatively promote craniofacial development through regulating chromatin and gene expression dynamics in the facial surface ectoderm.

    The ACF chromatin-remodeling complex is essential for Polycomb repression

    Elizabeth T Wiles et al.
    The ACF chromatin-remodeling complex positions the +1 nucleosome in facultative heterochromatin to mediate transcriptional repression at Polycomb target genes.

    MCMBP promotes the assembly of the MCM2–7 hetero-hexamer to ensure robust DNA replication in human cells

    Yuichiro Saito et al.
    The MCM-binding protein (MCMBP) promotes the hexamer assembly of the replicative MCM2–7 helicase by interacting with the nascent MCM3 subunit, playing a key role in achieving high expression levels of the functional MCM2–7 helicase for maintaining genome integrity.

    Ribosome profiling of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus reveals novel features of viral gene expression

    Georgia M Cook et al.
    Combining ribosome profiling and RNA sequencing illuminates novel features of porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome virus gene expression, including the regulation of polyprotein stoichiometry through temporal modulation of ribosomal frameshifting and the synthesis of non-canonical transcripts.

    Hydrop enables droplet-based single-cell ATAC-seq and single-cell RNA-seq using dissolvable hydrogel beads

    Florian V De Rop et al.
    New open-source method contains all the tools for extracting open chromatin or RNA from thousands of single cells in parallel for <5% of the cost of state-of-the-art commercial alternatives, paving the way for whole-tissue atlasing and new protocol development.

    Quantification of protein abundance and interaction defines a mechanism for operation of the circadian clock

    Alex A Koch et al.
    Dynamic interactions of core clock molecules are quantitively measured and mathematically modelled to reveal the hidden role of PER:CRY complexes in enhancing the mobility of CLOCK:BMAL1 to move to new DNA sites.
