    ImmunoCluster provides a computational framework for the nonspecialist to profile high-dimensional cytometry data

    James W Opzoomer et al.
    ImmunoCluster permits nonspecialist users to interrogate liquid and imaging mass, and flow cytometry datasets, resolving novel layers of cellular heterogeneity and insight, as well as producing publishable outputs and figures.

    Competitive binding of STATs to receptor phospho-Tyr motifs accounts for altered cytokine responses

    Stephan Wilmes et al.
    IL-27 exerts differential activation of STAT1 and STAT3 via IL-27Ra and GP130, respectively, leading to a kinetic decoupling of its gene expression program, which contributes to tune its immuno-modulatory activities.

    A cross-sectional study of functional and metabolic changes during aging through the lifespan in male mice

    Michael A Petr et al.
    A comprehensive cross-sectional assessment reveals functional decline in mice consistent with increased energetic cost of physical activity with age through metabolic rewiring in multiple organs.

    TRex, a fast multi-animal tracking system with markerless identification, and 2D estimation of posture and visual fields

    Tristan Walter, Iain D Couzin
    Being fast, memory efficient, easy to use, and with powerful integrated tools, TRex will lower barriers of entry into, and enable more ambitious approaches to, the quantitative study of behavior.

    Proteomic and transcriptomic profiling reveal different aspects of aging in the kidney

    Yuka Takemon et al.
    mRNA profiling alone provides an incomplete picture of molecular aging and examination of changes in proteins is essential to understand aging processes that are not transcriptionally regulated.

    Integrating taxonomic, functional, and strain-level profiling of diverse microbial communities with bioBakery 3

    Francesco Beghini et al.
    The bioBakery 3 platform enables improved, integrated, and strain-level analysis of microbial communities from large-scale meta-omic data.

    Associations of topic-specific peer review outcomes and institute and center award rates with funding disparities at the National Institutes of Health

    Michael S Lauer et al.
    An analysis of peer review and funding outcomes of NIH research applications shows that funding disparities of topics preferred by African American Black investigators are not due to peer review preferences or biases.
