[Insect Genomics] Acquiring the genes to digest wood


The larvae of the invasive Asian longhorned beetle burrow into and kill trees. On sequencing the genome, McKenna et al. found that gene transfers from fungi and bacteria, followed – [Read More]

[Plant Biology] Targeting tip growth


Tip growth, which characterizes cells as diverse as root hairs and brain neurons, depends on secretory vesicles to add new plasma membrane in a defined subdomain. Bloch et al.[Read More]

[Cell Biology] Getting an UPR hand on recovERy


The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is an intracellular membranous labyrinth that provides the entry point to the secretory pathway. During proteotoxic stress, the ER expands to cope with – [Read More]

[Human Biology] Neuron development in human embryos


Mammalian fertility depends on the secretion of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) from a population of specialized neurons residing in the hypothalamus. During embryogenesis, these – [Read More]

[Animal Development] Keeping tissue layers separate


Keeping tissue layers separate Gastrulation is the conversion of an embryo from a single sheet of pluripotent cells into a structure with multiple tissue layers. This process establishes – [Read More]

[Robotics] Autonomously eat, digest, move, repeat


Truly autonomous robots require a robust and independent way to move and a means to harvest energy from the environment. Philamore et al. push toward these goals by devising – [Read More]

[Neuroscience] Side effects for placebo poppers


Patients in clinical trials may see their conditions improve, sometimes dramatically, even when they are in the control arm of the study. Tétreault et al. used brain imaging – [Read More]
