Increased temperature and altered summer precipitation have differential effects on biological soil crusts in a dryland ecosystem
Biological soil crusts (biocrusts) are common and ecologically important members of dryland ecosystems worldwide, where they stabilize soil surfaces and contribute newly fixed C and N to soils. ToExpand

Response of Biological Soil Crust Diazotrophs to Season, Altered Summer Precipitation, and Year-Round Increased Temperature in an Arid Grassland of the Colorado Plateau, USA
Biological soil crusts (biocrusts), which supply significant amounts of fixed nitrogen into terrestrial ecosystems worldwide (∼33 Tg y−1), are likely to respond to changes in temperature andExpand

midlife crisis encodes a conserved zinc-finger protein required to maintain neuronal differentiation in Drosophila
Stem cells generate progeny that undergo terminal differentiation. The initiation and maintenance of the differentiated status is crucial for tissue development, function and homeostasis. DrosophilaExpand

Functional genomics identifies neural stem cell sub-type expression profiles and genes regulating neuroblast homeostasis.
The Drosophila larval central brain contains about 10,000 differentiated neurons and 200 scattered neural progenitors (neuroblasts), which can be further subdivided into ~95 type I neuroblasts andExpand

Tissue-Specific Regulation of Translational Readthrough Tunes Functions of the Traffic Jam Transcription Factor
Translational readthrough (TR) occurs when the ribosome decodes a stop codon as a sense codon, resulting in two protein isoforms synthesized from the same mRNA. TR is pervasive in eukaryoticExpand
