    Global chromatin mobility induced by a DSB is dictated by chromosomal conformation and defines the HR outcome

    Fabiola García Fernández, Etienne Almayrac ... Emmanuelle Fabre
    A designed system to track homologous recombination (HR) in vivo demonstrates the importance of chromosome organization in the induction of global mobility in response to double-strand breaks and characterizes the role of two types of global motility in HR.

    Association analyses of host genetics, root-colonizing microbes, and plant phenotypes under different nitrogen conditions in maize

    Michael A Meier, Gen Xu ... Jinliang Yang
    Comprehensive analyses of host genetics, root-associated microbiomes, and plant phenotypes under two nitrogen treatments reveals host genetic control of microbe abundance which, in turn, affects plant performance.
