September 10, 2015 — Protein interactions are fundamental to the proper functioning of cells, and aberrant formation or regulation of protein interactions is at the heart of many diseases, including cancer. The advancement of methods to study the identity, function, and regulation of protein complexes makes possible the understanding of how those complexes malfunction in human diseases. This series of minireviews highlights methodological advances and how they have been applied in novel ways to explore the function and regulation of pathways and dynamic networks in cells.

July 14, 2015 — Four Minireviews deal with aspects of the α-ketoglutarate/iron dependent dioxygenases in this eighth Thematic Series on Metals in Biology. The Minireviews cover a general introduction and synopsis of the current understanding of mechanisms of catalysis, the roles of these dioxygenases in post-translational protein modification and de-modification, the roles of the ten-eleven translocation (Tet) dioxygenases in the modification of methylated bases (5mC, T) in DNA relevant to epigenetic mechanisms, and the roles of the AlkB-related dioxygenases in the repair of damaged DNA and RNA.
The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) announced 15 scientist-educators who have been named HHMI professors. Each will receive $1 million over five years "to create activities that integrate their research with student learning in ways that enhance students' understanding of science." Forty scientists have been named HHMI professors since the program began in 2002.
