Thermal Stress Has Minimal Effects on Bacterial Communities of Thermotolerant Symbiodinium Cultures (open access)

Thermal Stress Has Minimal Effects on Bacterial Communities of Thermotolerant Symbiodinium Cultures

Article comparing the microbial communities of three isolates from different species of the genus Symbiodinium (formerly known as Symbiodinium clade A) with different ecophysiology, levels of interaction with the animal host, and thermal adaptations. Results suggest that bacteria associated or co-cultured with thermotolerant Symbiodinium might play an important role in thermotolerance.

West Nile Virus risk and susceptibility in central California modeling dataset

The dataset was developed to support research intended to develop a spatially explicit model that explores environmental data related to the risk of exposure to West Nile Virus (WNV), and the susceptibility to WNV disease based on demographic data of the potentially affected population. The model was developed and then tested on census tracts in an identified hot spot of WNV in central California. The dataset contains (1) U.S. Census Bureau 2010 demographic data for 1,133 census tracks in the hotspot, and (2) and average mosquito habitat risk data for each of those census tracks.

Persistent spin helix in Rashba-Dresselhaus ferroelectric CsBiNb2O7 (open access)

Persistent spin helix in Rashba-Dresselhaus ferroelectric CsBiNb2O7

Article reporting that CsBiNb₂O₇, a layered perovskite of Dion-Jacobson type, is a robust ferroelectric with sufficiently strong spin-orbit coupling and spin texture reversible by electric field. The study reveals that its topmost valence band's spin texture is quasi-independent from the momentum, as a result of the low symmetry of its ferroelectric phase. The peculiar spin-polarization pattern in the momentum space may yield the so-called “persistent spin helix,” a specific spin-wave mode which protects the spin from decoherence in the diffusive transport regime, potentially ensuring a very long spin lifetime in this material.

RNaseH-mediated simultaneous piggyback knockdown of multiple genes in adult zebrafish (open access)

RNaseH-mediated simultaneous piggyback knockdown of multiple genes in adult zebrafish

This article tests if it is possible to piggyback more than one antisense deoxyoligonucleotide (dO) with one vivo morpholino (VMO). The authors previously developed a piggyback knockdown method that was used to knockdown genes in adult zebrafish. In this article, the authors develop a method to knockdown three genes at one time, and by increasing the concentration of VMO by twofold, could knockdown six genes simultaneously. These multiple gene knockdowns will not only increase the efficiency of the method in whole genome-wide knockdowns but will also be useful to study multifactorial disorders.
