Today’s selection of articles includes:

  1. Symbionts on the road to a single species“, by Julia Fahrenkamp-Uppenbrink (Science). And the two (symbionts) shall become one. Links to the Perspective article by Kiers & West (“Evolving new organisms via symbiosis“).
  2. The delicate dance of translation and folding“, by Joseph D. Puglisi (Science). Two recent studies shed light on the timing of protein folding and its interaction with the translation process. Links to research articles by Goldman et al. (“Mechanical force releases nascent chain-mediated ribosome arrest in vitro and in vivo“) and Kim et al. (“Translational tuning optimizes nascent protein folding in cells“) in the current issue of Science.
