    Seiji Iwata et al. report protocols for visualizing and measuring the torque of the rotary propeller (archaellar) used by the Archea Halobacterium salinarum. They find that the estimated work done in a single rotation is more than expected and propose a new model for the mechanism of ATP-driven rotary motors.

    Alec Lackmann et al. used thin-sectioned otoliths and bomb radiocarbon dating on earstones from the Bigmouth Buffalo fish. They found individuals can reach up to 112 years of age, and that many populations are largely comprised of individuals over 80 years, suggesting long-term recruitment failure due to dam construction in the 1930s.

    Aksoy et al. develop a reporter assay that allows them to quantify events mediated by homology-directed repair (HDR) in live zebrafish at single cell resolution. Using this assay, they systematically test and identify small molecule modulators that enhance the efficiency of HDR-mediated genome editing in zebrafish.

    Juliane Bremer et al. show that ubiquitin ligase PHR directs the regrowth of zebrafish Mauthner axons after transection. Misdirected axonal regrowth caused by the lack of PHR can be reversed by pharmacological inhibition of JNK or genetic ablation of cyfip2, suggesting an important role for these signaling pathways in spinal axonal regrowth.

    Salome Leprince, Stephanie Huberlant et al. report the design of a degradable anti-adhesion intrauterine device that prevents formation of intrauterine adhesions following trauma or surgery. They show its efficacy in rats and its usability in the human uterus.

    VanRullen and Reddy apply a state-of-the-art AI technique to brain decoding. After learning to translate multi-voxel fMRI activity patterns into the activation space of a deep generative neural network, each particular face viewed, or even imagined, by a human subject in the scanner can be visualized with unprecedented accuracy.

    Jie Yang et al. show the non-enzymatic production of hydrogen sulfide from sulfur-containing amino acids (SAA) in vitro and in blood. They find that the reaction uses SAA cysteine as a substrate, and requires coordinated catalysis by Vitamin B6 and iron, all under physiological conditions.

    Dr. Kate Miroshnikova is a bioengineer by training and is currently a postdoctoral EMBO/HFSP fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing and at the Helsinki Institute of Life Science. She is interested in understanding biomechanical regulation of stem cell fate decisions in health and disease. Kate’s long term scientific interest is to understand how cells and tissues sense, integrate, and adapt their transcriptomes and proteomes to the highly dynamic mechanical environments without compromising structural and genomic integrity.

    Yujiang Wang et al. show that despite regional differences in brain morphology, different regions in individual brains still obey the universal scaling law of cortical morphology. Although premature aging was observed in Alzheimer's disease patients, these changes also followed the scaling law, suggesting that cortical morphology is guided by universal principles.

<em>Communications Biology</em> first year anniversary collection

Communications Biology first year anniversary collection

Communications Biology published its first articles on January 22, 2018. In this collection, our in-house editors highlight some of their favorite papers from our first year of publishing. This collection also includes all Review and Comment articles published during our first year. To celebrate some of our featured articles, we have also commissioned 'After the Paper' Comment articles from a few of our authors. These will be added to the collection as they are published. Finally, we link to all 'Behind the Paper' posts published by our authors on some of the Nature Research community sites.
