    An integrative model of cardiometabolic traits identifies two types of metabolic syndrome

    Amit Frishberg et al.
    A novel type of metabolic syndrome, derived from computational modeling of phenotypic diversity in normal physiological settings, increases the risk of certain complex diseases.

    Shape deformation analysis reveals the temporal dynamics of cell-type-specific homeostatic and pathogenic responses to mutant huntingtin

    Lucile Megret et al.
    Cell-type-specific molecular systems mapping reveals that striatal neuron degeneration in Huntington's disease is primarily driven by the loss of homeostatic responses.

    Individual variation in Achilles tendon morphology and geometry changes susceptibility to injury

    Nai-Hao Yin et al.
    Studying individual Achilles tendon geometry and interface sliding capacity may allow prediction of injury sites, and targeted training on specific muscle-(sub-)tendon units may boost beneficial outcomes for Achilles tendinopathy.

    Global, cell non-autonomous gene regulation drives individual lifespan among isogenic C. elegans

    Holly E Kinser et al.
    Expression of almost half of a library of fluorescent reporters distinguish long- from short-lived individual Caenorhabditis elegans, suggesting that organism-wide differences in gene expression drive future lifespan.

    Cycles, sources, and sinks: Conceptualizing how phosphate balance modulates carbon flux using yeast metabolic networks

    Ritu Gupta, Sunil Laxman
    A theoretical conceptualization of how phosphates control metabolic information flow and predictably regulate the metabolic state of the cell.

    Metage2Metabo, microbiota-scale metabolic complementarity for the identification of key species

    Arnaud Belcour et al.
    Computational models and software connect metagenomics to metabolic network reconstruction, assess metabolic complementarity between species, and identify critical species associated to functions of interest.
