    Mandrill mothers associate with infants who look like their own offspring using phenotype matching

    Marie JE Charpentier, Clémence Poirotte ... Julien P Renoult
    Mandrill mothers know best because they use their offspring’s facial resemblance with other infants to guide their social opportunities towards similar-looking ones as an adaptive maternal behavior.

    High-resolution species assignment of Anopheles mosquitoes using k-mer distances on targeted sequences

    Marilou Boddé, Alex Makunin ... Mara KN Lawniczak
    Large-scale monitoring of Anopheles populations benefits from a robust and accurate species identification and plasmodium detection method that is applicable to the entire genus.

    The landscape of transcriptional and translational changes over 22 years of bacterial adaptation

    John S Favate, Shun Liang ... Premal Shah
    Parallel changes in organismal evolution can be observed even with disparate genomic changes due to similarity in functional outcomes, such as changes in molecular phenotypes like gene expression patterns.

    The evolution of manipulative cheating

    Ming Liu, Stuart Andrew West, Geoff Wild
    By considering a new form of social cheat strategy, arms-races-like dynamics between coevolving selfish traits could emerge from the tragedy of the commons and help explain the variations in cheating levels observed in many microbes and eusocial insects.

    Environmental response in gene expression and DNA methylation reveals factors influencing the adaptive potential of Arabidopsis lyrata

    Tuomas Hämälä, Weixuan Ning ... Outi Savolainen
    Environmentally responsive genes evolve under strong selective constraint in Arabidopsis lyrata.

    Evolution: A life LINE for large viruses

    Eugene V Koonin, Mart Krupovic
    As long suspected, poxviruses capture host genes through a reverse-transcription process now shown to be mediated by retrotransposons.
