The preferred specimen orientation problem limits accuracy and resolution in structure determination by cryo-EM. Collecting data at defined sample tilts yielded near-atomic-resolution structures for the influenza hemagglutinin trimer and ribosomal biogenesis intermediates.
FHIRM-TPM is a miniature two-photon microscope capable of imaging fluorescently labeled neurons in the brains of freely behaving mice. It allows for imaging of spines or recording of neural activity with a frame rate up to 40 Hz.
The reliability and reproducibility of science are under scrutiny. However, a major cause of this lack of repeatability is not being considered: the wide sample-to-sample variability in the P value. We explain why P is fickle to discourage the ill-informed practice of interpreting analyses based predominantly on this statistic.
Early STOP codons created with CRISPR base editors leads to gene knockout with high efficiency and does not stress cells with double-strand DNA breaks. CRISPR-STOP can target the majority of human genes and is useful for genetic screens.
Six tools to call chromatin interactions and seven tools for topologically associating domain calling are systematically compared with real and simulated data. The strengths and weaknesses of each tool are discussed.

The seeded iterative demixing strategy, when used in combination with light-field microscopy, enables calcium imaging at single-neuron resolution in the mouse brain at high volumetric imaging rates and depths of up to 380 μm.
“The statistician knows...that in nature there never was a normal distribution, there never was a straight line, yet with normal and linear assumptions, known to be false, he can often derive results which match, to a useful approximation, those found in the real world.”
