Plant pathogenic oomycetes secrete a diverse repertoire of effector proteins that modulate host innate immunity and enable parasitic infection. Understanding how effectors evolve, translocate and traffic inside host cells, and perturb host processes are major themes in the study of oomycete–plant interactions. The last year has seen important progress in the study of oomycete effectors with, notably, the elucidation of the 3D structures of five RXLR effectors, and novel insights into how cytoplasmic effectors subvert host cells. In this review, we discuss these and other recent advances and highlight the most important open questions in oomycete effector biology.
Neuroscientists from the University of California, Berkeley have successfully decoded brain activity into audible sounds. This is effectively mind reading.
By recording nerve impulses from the auditory cortex, scientists were able to detect which word a subject was thinking about 80-90% of the time. Although a highly invasive procedure, the experiment rested on the assumption that the activation of nerves in the auditory cortex is identical or similar when a word is heard or processed, as when a subject simply thought about it. What will the future utilize such technology for? We can only imagine.
“Writing today,” say the authors of Because Digital Writing Matters, “is pervasively and generally digital; composed with digital tools; created out of word, image, sound, and motion; circulated in digital environments; and consumed across a wide range of digital platforms.” Many teachers are wondering, however, whether digital writing can align with the English Language Arts strand of the Common Core State Standards, now adopted by 45 states and the District of Columbia. Many Digital Is resources demonstrate that it can.
