Computational and Systems Biology
Repeated outbreaks drive the evolution of bacteriophage communication
Hilje M Doekes et al.
Evolutionary conflicts and adverse effects of antiviral factors
Daniel Sauter, Frank Kirchhoff
Innate antiviral factors do not always perfectly distinguish between self and foreign, and potential adverse effects of antiviral defense mechanisms for the host have been discussed.
A flagellate-to-amoeboid switch in the closest living relatives of animals
Thibaut Brunet et al.
Proteomics reveals synergy between biomass degrading enzymes and inorganic Fenton chemistry in leaf-cutting ant colonies
Morten Schiøtt, Jacobus J Boomsma
Microbiology and Infectious Disease
Globally defining the effects of mutations in a picornavirus capsid
Florian Mattenberger et al.
Determining the probability of hemiplasy in the presence of incomplete lineage sorting and introgression
Mark S Hibbins et al.
Introgression makes hemiplasy more likely, and the probability of hemiplasy incorporating incomplete lineage sorting (ILS) and introgression can be estimated using the presented simulation software.

Selfing is the safest sex for
Luke M Noble et al.
A Bayesian approach to dynamic homology of morphological characters and the ancestral phenotype of jawed vertebrates
Benedict King, Martin Rücklin
The ancestor of all known jawed vertebrates possessed a maxilla and premaxilla and was similar in morphology to the 'maxillate placoderms' from China.
Genetics and Genomics
Universal and taxon-specific trends in protein sequences as a function of age
Jennifer E James et al.
Whole genome phylogenies reflect the distributions of recombination rates for many bacterial species
Thomas Sakoparnig et al.
