The well-supported molecular phylogeny provides evidence for delineation of subfamilies within core Asparagales and the use of massively parallel sequencing will continue to become easier and more affordable for phylogenomic and molecular evolutionary biology investigations.
Phylogenetics, divergence times and diversification from three genomic partitions in monocots
This study sequenced and analysed a fragment of the low-copy, nuclear phytochrome C (PHYC) gene and combined these data with a previous multigene data set to determine if adding this marker improved resolution and support of relationships among major lineages of monocots.
Genomics of Parallel Experimental Evolution in Drosophila
A high degree of evolutionary parallelism in fitness phenotypes when most-recent selection regimes are shared is found and genomic parallelism with respect to the frequencies of single-nucleotide polymorphisms, transposable elements, insertions, and structural variants is found, which was expected.

Exosome based screening of key HPVOPC associated molecules could be beneficial for early cancer diagnosis, monitoring and surveillance.
Systematics and Evolution of Inflorescence Structure in the Tradescantia Alliance (Commelinaceae)
The presence of self compatible and incompatible species allowed us to test the hypothesis that self compatible species will have condensed inflorescences, as less allocation to floral display is necessary, and no correlation was found.
Phylogenetics of Mentha (Lamiaceae): Evidence from Chloroplast DNA Sequences
Based on cpDNA data, Mentha is strongly supported as monophyletic and the suggestions that M. cervina and M. cunninghamii should be placed in other genera gain no support from this analysis.
Assembly and comparative analysis of transposable elements from low coverage genomic sequence data in Asparagales.

The major finding is that although some lineages in Asparagales exhibit conservation in repeat proportions, there is generally wide variation in types and frequency of repeats.
Host Identity Impacts Rhizosphere Fungal Communities Associated with Three Alpine Plant Species
It is suggested that host identity has a stronger effect on rhizosphere fungi than habitat, and this effect was stronger for the mutualistic AMF community.
Ten simple rules for collaborative lesson development
Ten simple rules for creating lessons that are open, accessible, and sustainable are presented drawn from the experience with several successful projects.
The Landscape of mtDNA Modifications in Cancer: A Tale of Two Cities
Current knowledge in the abundance and distribution of somatic mitochondrial mutations is documented, followed by elucidation of processes which affect the fate of mutations in cancer cells.
