    Repurposing eflornithine to treat a patient with a rare ODC1 gain-of-function variant disease

    Surender Rajasekaran et al.
    Genetic sequencing has led to the increased diagnoses of rare diseases, strategies such as repurposing drugs and global metabolomics offer promise and bring hope to afflicted families.

    An actin-related protein that is most highly expressed in Drosophila testes is critical for embryonic development

    Courtney M Schroeder et al.
    Non-canonical ‘testis-specific’ actin-related protein (Arp), Arp53D, is critical for early embryonic development in Drosophila, revealing important roles for lineage-specific, divergent, testis-expressed non-canonical Arps outside the male germline in animals.

    Establishment of H3K9me3-dependent heterochromatin during embryogenesis in Drosophila miranda

    Kevin H-C Wei et al.
    Heterochromatin is established at nucleation sites associated with open chromatin and RNA transcripts and matures into stable domains if they are found near transposable elements targeted by maternally deposited piRNAs.

    Psychosocial experiences modulate asthma-associated genes through gene-environment interactions

    Justyna A Resztak et al.
    Psychosocial environments modulate genetic risk of asthma and other allergic diseases through altered peripheral blood gene expression.

    Genomic basis for drought resistance in European beech forests threatened by climate change

    Markus Pfenninger et al.
    European beech harbours substantial genetic variation at genomic loci associated with drought resistance and newly identified loci can help to accelerate and monitor adaptation to climate change.

    Genetic and pharmacological evidence for kinetic competition between alternative poly(A) sites in yeast

    Rachael Emily Turner et al.
    The natural compounds cordycepin and mycophenolic acid stimulate alternative polyadenylation through opposing effects on transcriptional rate.
