Zebra finch

Featured article: Vocal learning is a matter of genes

Differential gene expression in the song control nuclei of zebra finches provides insights into the molecular mechanisms that regulate the ability to imitate the vocalizations of other organisms.

DNA helix

Featured article: Defining human RFX transcription factors

Extensive analysis of large-scale experimental datasets allowed a detailed characterization of the whole human RFX gene family, including functional domain composition, differential tissue expression, target genes and upstream regulators.
