  • Fluid dynamics, scaling laws and plesiosaur locomotion 9. August 2022
    The evolutionary success of plesiosaurs has led to much attention regarding the dynamics of their locomotion. They exhibit identical tandem flippers, which is unique among all living and extinct species. However, these tandem flippers have been a source of debate regarding plesiosaurs’ locomotion and behavior. Here we propose a new approach to studying plesiosaur locomotion […]

  • Detection of passageways in natural foliage using biomimetic sonar 9. August 2022
    The ability of certain bat species to navigate in dense vegetation based on trains of short biosonar echoes could provide for an alternative parsimonious approach to obtaining the sensory information that is needed to achieve autonomy in complex natural environments. Although bat biosonar has much lower data rates and spatial (angular) resolution than commonly used […]

  • A robotic leg inspired from an insect leg 8. August 2022
    While most insect-inspired robots come with a simple tarsus, such as a hemispherical foot tip, insect legs have complex tarsal structures and claws, which enable them to walk on complex terrain. Their sharp claws can smoothly attach and detach on plant surfaces by actuating a single muscle. Thus, installing an insect-inspired tarsus on legged robots […]

  • Nested epistasis enhancer networks for robust genome regulation | Science 11. August 2022
    Mammalian genomes possess multiple enhancers spanning an ultralong distance (>megabases) to modulate important genes, yet it is unclear how these enhancers coordinate to achieve this task. Here, we combine multiplexed CRISPRi screening with machine ...
  • Editorial Retraction | Science 9. August 2022
    On 22 August 2014, Science published the Research Article “Chemically mediated behavior of recruiting corals and fishes: A tipping point that may limit reef recovery” by D. L. Dixson et al. (1). On 17 February, we published an Editorial Expression of Concern (2) after being made aware of data manipulation accusations pertaining to this paper. […]
  • Pituitary hormone α-MSH promotes tumor-induced myelopoiesis and immunosuppression | Science 4. August 2022
    The hypothalamic-pituitary (HP) unit can produce various hormones to regulate immune responses and some of its downstream hormones or effectors are elevated in cancer patients. We show that HP unit can promote myelopoiesis and immunosuppression to ...
