    A framework for studying behavioral evolution by reconstructing ancestral repertoires

    Damián G Hernández et al.
    The behavioral repertoires from six species of flies are measured, and a statistical approach is developed to predict co-evolving behaviors, providing a potential framework for exploring behavioral evolution.

    A population-level invasion by transposable elements triggers genome expansion in a fungal pathogen

    Ursula Oggenfuss et al.
    The activation of transposable elements and relaxed purifying selection underpin an incipient expansion of the genome in populations of a major wheat pathogen.
