Modelling the visual world of a velvet worm

Here Ljungholm and Nilsson use ray tracing applied to accurate anatomical/optical models of the eyes of a velvet worm to reconstruct the visual acuity in all parts of the visual field. They calculated visual performance to closely simulate what animals would see in their natural habitat. The method can be applied to any (preferably small) eye and offers an alternative strategy that may yield information about the visual capacity that is otherwise hard to obtain.

SiGMoiD: A super-statistical generative model for binary data

Zhao et al. propose a theoretical generalization of the maximum entropy approach that allows them to model very high dimensional data; at least an order of magnitude higher than what is currently possible. This framework will be a significant advancement in the computational analysis of covarying binary variables.

Dimeric allostery mechanism of the plant circadian clock photoreceptor ZEITLUPE

In this study, the authors investigated the allosteric mechanism of ZTL in both parallel and anti-parallel dimeric states through computational means. They provide mechanistic and dynamic models with atomistic details underlying the functions of this circadian clock protein ZEITLUPE.
