    Spatio-temporal control of mutualism in legumes helps spread symbiotic nitrogen fixation

    Benoit Daubech et al.
    Experiments and mathematical modelling show that rare nitrogen fixing symbionts invade a population dominated by non-fixing bacteria across plant generations, above a threshold of a combination of ecological factors.

    Genomic regions controlling shape variation in the first upper molar of the house mouse

    Luisa F Pallares et al.
    An association mapping in wild mice revealed the first candidate loci for within-population molar shape variation and the phenotypic impact of such candidate loci was quantified and validated.

    Sperm competition risk drives rapid ejaculate adjustments mediated by seminal fluid

    Michael J Bartlett et al.
    Seminal fluid harbours the as yet unknown mechanism that facilitates rapid adjustment of sperm velocity in response to changing sperm competition risk.

    Sperm Competition: The need for speed

    Tom Pizzari
    A change in social status can quickly lead to a change in the quality of the seminal fluid produced by a male Chinook salmon as he responds to increased reproductive competition from higher-status males.

    Multiplexed genetic engineering of human hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells using CRISPR/Cas9 and AAV6

    Rasmus O Bak et al.
    The CRISPR/Cas9 system can be used with recombinant AAV6 donor delivery to facilitate simultaneous, targeted integration into multiple genetic loci in hematopoietic stem and progrenitor cells.
