The order of precursor cell division impacts Drosophila behavior

Sophie Louvet and her colleagues in Michel Gho's team (LBD) have discovered that the precursor cells of Drosophila mechanosensory bristles divide in a temporal wave that propagates from the center of [...]

Cerebello-hippocampal dynamics during sleep: the role of "delta" oscillations

The cerebellum is well known to play a role in cognitive processes, including spatial navigation, by being functionally associated with brain networks and the hippocampus. The team of Laure Rondi-Reig (NPS) has performed recordings of the cerebellum [...]


Hydrodynamic flow and concentration gradients in the gut promote bacterial diversity

The human body is home to many and varied bacteria, the vast majority of which are found in the gut. These bacteria can mutate and evolve in the intestine, which is their natural environment. This can have significant implications for public health [...]

A chromatin factor involved in splicing through its association with RNA

The team of Christian Muchardt (B2A) et al. have identified a mechanism for the role of the heterochromatin marker protein HP1gamma in splicing. RNAs associated with this factor are enriched in repeated motifs in regions that are removed during splicing.These results were published in EMBO Reports. […]

What is found at the end of a chromosome?

The ends of chromosomes are essential structures for genome integrity. This work was published in the journal Nucleic Acids Research. In this paper, the researchers use long-read sequencing data to comprehensively map subtelomeres in the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii and identify specific repeated elements, providing information about the function and evolution of these regions. [...]
