The telomere bouquet is a hub where meiotic double-strand breaks, synapsis, and stable homolog juxtaposition are coordinated in the zebrafish, Danio rerio

In this study, Yana P. Blokhina and colleagues use zebrafish to show that the telomere bouquet is the site where key events leading to homologous chromosome pairing are coordinated. The authors further show that deletion of spo11 results in sterile males, while females produce deformed progeny.

Diapause induces functional axonal regeneration after necrotic insult in C. elegans

Diapause entry and hibernation have the striking ability to protect the nervous system from diverse types of damage. Here, Mauricio Caneo and colleagues show that the diapausing dauer larvae of C. elegans regenerate broken mechanosensory neurons that were damaged by the hyperactivation of degenerins (MEC-4d) or by axotomy during diapause.

Estimating recent migration and population-size surfaces

Hussein Al-Asadi and colleagues introduce a novel statistical method - Migration And Population-size Surfaces (MAPS) - to infer migration rates and population sizes across space in recent time periods. The authors apply MAPS to a dataset of contemporary European individuals and provide an integrated analysis of recent population structure and growth over the last ∼3,000 years in Europe.

Wagging the long tail of drivers of prostate cancer

Here, Cannataro and Townsend discuss the utility of uniformly analyzing data sets from a large number of clinically diverse tumors from the same tissue in prostate cancer.
