✨✨We are thrilled to share 2 new papers published this week in:
#BiologicalPsychiatry: Genetic heterogeneity shapes brain connectivity in psychiatry…

#Brain: Brain connectivity mirrors genetic pleiotropy in psychiatric conditions…
1/7 #Polygenicity (=multiple genetic variants associated with one condition) and #pleiotropy (=one genetic variant influencing more than one trait) are key properties of the genomic architecture of #psychiatric conditions and represent major challenges in identifying mechanisms.
2/7 We processed 9 rs-fMRI datasets including 32,726 individuals, to examine the connectome-wide effects of 15 copy number variants, 7 polygenic scores (common variants), and 4 idiopathic psychiatric conditions (Autism, Schizophrenia, ADHD, Bipolar disorder).

Excited to see my first ever first-author paper and the first chapter of my dissertation out now in @ISMEJournal!

We did an exhaustive review/synthesis of what is known about the effects of community context on bacteria-phage ecology and evolution (spoiler: not much)

If you want a little more detail than a Twitter thread, you can check out a 'behind-the-paper' blog post we wrote here:…

There has been a long history of studying bacteria and their viral symbionts, #bacteriophages. In #ecology and #evolution, they've been workhorse systems for studying host-parasite interactions for many years (3/n)

1/ 💥Hello, #Nephtwitter 💥
⚡️Let’s talk a little bit about #ciliopathies today.
⚡️How are Nephronophthisis (NPHP), polycystic kidney disease (PKD), & in fact many cystic diseases (aka #ciliopathies) related?!
Join me in the exploration-

2/ 💥Let’s begin with Cilia-
📌Motile cilia- generate flow of mucus & CSF
📌Non-motile/sensory cilia (inner ear, retina, & olfactory epithelium)
- plays a part in important pathways [Hedgehog, Wnt (wingless-Int-1), & PCP (planar cell polarity) signaling]…
3/Now let’s move on to💥Cystoproteins💥
📌These are proteins in cilia when mutated → cystic kidney diseases in humans, mice, or zebrafish
📌expressed in primary cilia, basal bodies or centrosomes
