[Insect Genomics] Acquiring the genes to digest wood

2016-12-02

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

2016-12-02

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

2016-12-02

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

2016-12-02

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

2016-12-02

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

2016-12-02

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

2016-12-02

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]
