    Holly Vincent et al. use species distribution modeling, climate change projections, and geographical analyses of more than 1200 crop wild relatives, identifying 150 key conservation areas most effective in preserving genetic diversity of crop wild relatives.

    Jing Zhang et al. analyze glioblastoma patient data with a computational model integrating mutation-derived neoantigens similar to pathogen-specific antigens with enrichment of signatures for individual immune cells. Using a fitness model for identifying high-quality neoantigens and T lymphocyte infiltrates in glioblastoma, they uncover a subset of patients with prolonged survival.

    Martin Brandt et al. studied foliage mass from Senegal over 30 years, observing the effects of climate change on dryland vegetation. Rainfall caused increases in both herbaceous and woody foliage, but woody vegetation benefits from rainfall timing changes with potential knock-on effects to the local herbivore populations.

    Josef Tkadlec et al. investigate population structures that mediate the trade-off between fixation probability and time. They identify structures that enable higher effective rates of evolution than the well-mixed population, which could be applied to in vitro evolution applications.

    Dr. Benjamin Bitler began his independent career at University of Colorado in January 2017. In this short Q&A he tells us about his motivation and passion for research, advice he would give to his younger self, and the attributes of cancer cells that he finds most perplexing.

    Gail Singer et al. demonstrate that cAMP waves are periodically initiated in the tip and propagate backward during multicellular Dictyostelium morphogenesis. This study suggests that propagating cAMP serves as the long-range intercellular communication signal beyond the initial aggregation process.

    Shuguang Yuan et al. report molecular modeling of the prototypical olfactory receptor Olfr73 and find that the binding pocket is much smaller but more flexible than that of typical G-protein-coupled receptors. They virtually screen 1.6 million compounds and predict 25 Olfr73 agonists, 17 of which are validated by cell-based assays.
