This week had a whole bunch of papers in Science that were at least mildly associated with the classes scope--or just pretty interesting.
1) A perspective on the creation of a molecular animal tree of life, including some of the surprises associated with its creation: HERE
2) A perspective on the role of new insights from biophysics into gene regulation--specifically the role of adjacent DNA bound proteins and their allosteric effects: HERE
And the full length research article: HERE
3) A perspective on new ideas in gene therapy to create more targeted approaches using RNA-guided systems: HERE
And two full length research articles: HERE1 and HERE2
4) A comment and a response to a comment from a previous paper on "Evolutionary Trade-Offs, Pareto Optimality, and the Geometry of Phenotype Space" that showed how 'configurations of phenotypes may identify tasks that trade-off with each other': HEREC and HERER
