Improving research mentor training requires new approaches. Mentoring is essential for the success of researchers at all career stages, but not all mentor-mentee relationships are...


Improved duplex sequencing identifies spontaneous mutations in bacteria without long-term culturing. Spontaneous mutations are the driving force of evolution, yet, our ability to detect and...


Analysis of insulin-like signaling in C. elegans reveals extensive positive and negative feedback regulation. The insulin-like signaling system of nematode worms is comparable to that...


Apoptotic pathway promotes asymmetric cell division during C. elegans development. Cell division doesn’t always produce identical daughter cells; often, the demands of multicellular development require...


A Wnt protein involved in the formation of the human ovary plays an important role in female zebrafish sex development.    Even though zebrafish are...


An opportunistic human pathogen makes itself at home on old oaks. At one point or another, most people have played host to the common yeast...


The gene Ade2 links metabolism and sleep in the fat bodies of Drosophila. All animals need to eat and sleep. In fact, these critical behaviors...


Machine learning and access to ever-expanding databases improves genomic prediction of human traits. In theory, a scientist could predict your height using just your genome...


Parent-of-origin effects help determine how lab rats respond to stress. Although your father and mother each contribute a copy of your genes, these copies don’t...


Programmed ribosomal frameshifting has translational costs that may influence codon usage bias. The genetic code has some redundancy—the same amino acid is often encoded by...
