      Review Article
    • In this Review, Philippot et al. explore how soil microorganisms can affect the physical and chemical properties of soil and discuss the ecological and evolutionary consequences of these microbially driven shifts in soil properties. They also explore how microbially mediated changes in soil properties can be used to combat threats to soil health and other environmental challenges.

    • In this Review, Costa and colleagues summarize the current knowledge of type IV secretion system functioning in Gram-negative bacteria, with a focus on their architectures and adaptations for specialized functions. They also explore the biogenesis pathways and spatial localization of type IV secretion systems.

      Review Article
  • In this study, Simonis et al. show that chronic infection with Pseudomonas aeruginosa leads to development of neutralizing antibodies that could be exploited to fight against this pathogen.

    Research Highlight
  • In this study, Wang et al. show that bacterium-derived intestinal ammonia modulates glutamine production in the mouse brain and reduces stress-induced depressive-like behaviour.

  • This study provides evidence for a role of Anopheles stephensi in driving urban malaria outbreaks.

    • Andrea Du Toit
    Research Highlight
  • This study reports the identification of an archaeal virus Acr protein that blocks the dissociation of the target RNA from the type III-B CRISPR–Cas effector complex, which prevents the recycling of the complex.

    Research Highlight
  • This Genome Watch highlights how a tailor-made search through bacterial genomes revealed the widespread presence of a new class of bacterial signalling peptides that lack conventional characteristics.
