A regulatory model of mushroom development in S. commune is proposed and will serve as a basis to understand mushroom formation in nature and to enable and improve commercial mushroom production.
The FtsK gamma domain directs oriented DNA translocation by interacting with KOPS.
Mutated proteins with substitutions in the FtsKgamma DNA-recognition helix are impaired in DNA binding and KOPS recognition, yet remain competent in DNA translocation and XerCD-dif site-specific recombination, which facilitates the late stages of chromosome segregation.
Guidelines for Genome-Scale Analysis of Biological Rhythms
CircaInSilico is introduced, a web-based application for generating synthetic genome biology data to benchmark statistical methods for studying biological rhythms, and several unmet analytical needs, including applications to clinical medicine, are discussed and productive avenues to address them are suggested.

It is concluded that two subpopulations of hyphae can be distinguished within the exploring mycelium of Aspergillus niger, and the experimental data indicate that theseSubpopulations differ in their transcriptional and translational activity.
Gene expression during zombie ant biting behavior reflects the complexity underlying fungal parasitic behavioral manipulation
The mixed transcriptomics approach shows that the majority of the fungal genes that are up-regulated during manipulated biting behavior are unique to the O. unilateralis s.l. genome, and reveals that thefungal parasite might be regulating immune- and neuronal stress responses in the host during manipulated bitten, as well as impairing its chemosensory communication and causing apoptosis.
Species-specific ant brain manipulation by a specialized fungal parasite
The integrative work presented here shows that ant brain manipulation by O. unilateralis s.l. is species-specific seemingly because the fungus produces a specific array of compounds as a reaction to the presence of the host brain it has evolved to manipulate.

Metabolomics Reveals the Heterogeneous Secretome of Two Entomopathogenic Fungi to Ex Vivo Cultured Insect Tissues
Fungal entomopathogens rely on cellular heterogeneity during the different stages of insect host infection. Their pathogenicity is exhibited through the secretion of secondary metabolites, which…

The effect of a nonselective concentration of phleomycin strongly resembles the effect of restriction enzyme-mediated integration (REMI) but, unlike REMI, it does not depend on the presence of a target restriction site.
