How can computation advance microbiome research?

Microbiome science is already in the fast lane, but how can computations further speed up the pace of microbiome research? PLOS Computational Biology Editors-in-Chief Ruth Nussinov and Jason Papin detail the journal's plans to spur cutting-edge microbiome research, and invite submissions that use computation to further understanding of the microbiome across all organisms, including research using new and powerful software tools.

Synthesizing developmental trajectories

A wide range of problems in biology require analysis of multivariable dynamics in space and time. As a rule, the complexity of real systems precludes simultaneous monitoring of all the relevant variables, and multivariable dynamics must be synthesized from partial views provided by different experimental techniques. Villoutreix et al. present a formal framework for accomplishing this task in the context of imaging studies of pattern formation in developing tissues.

Ten simple rules for developing a mentor–mentee expectations document


Masters and Kreeger have developed a set of “expectations documents”—lab-specific documents that detail both big picture elements of the mentor–mentee relationship as well as some of the nitty-gritty rules of how a lab operates. How do you develop your own expectations document? Read these ten simple rules!
