Maternal microbes support fetal brain wiring

Nature, Published online: 23 September 2020; doi:10.1038/d41586-020-02657-yResident bacteria in the maternal gut are important for normal fetal brain development in mice. It emerges that this effect is driven by bacterially produced metabolite molecules that signal to the fetal brain.

Diversity in science: next steps for research group leaders

Nature, Published online: 23 September 2020; doi:10.1038/d41586-020-02681-yMany institutions publicly pledged their commitment to inclusion after Black Lives Matter protests this year. And researchers emphasize the need to maintain momentum.

Colloidal diamond

Nature, Published online: 23 September 2020; doi:10.1038/s41586-020-2718-6Self-assembly of cubic diamond crystals is demonstrated, by using precursor clusters of particles with carefully placed ‘sticky’ patches that attract and bind adjacent clusters in specific geometries.

The maternal microbiome modulates fetal neurodevelopment in mice

Nature, Published online: 23 September 2020; doi:10.1038/s41586-020-2745-3Small molecules that arise from the maternal gut microbiome in pregnant dams promote fetal thalamocortical axonogenesis in their offspring.

Initiation of a conserved trophectoderm program in human, cow and mouse embryos

Nature, Published online: 23 September 2020; doi:10.1038/s41586-020-2759-xComparative analysis of human, cow and mouse embryos shows that a mechanism involving atypical protein kinase C initiates the trophectoderm program during the morula stage in these three species.

Light-driven post-translational installation of reactive protein side chains

Nature, Published online: 23 September 2020; doi:10.1038/s41586-020-2733-7A wide range of side chains are installed into proteins by addition of photogenerated alkyl or difluroalkyl radicals, providing access to new functionality and reactivity in proteins.

The potential of real-world data

Nature, Published online: 23 September 2020; doi:10.1038/d41586-020-02680-zJanssen’s Craig Tendler talks to Nature about how data collected by the company after a drug is approved can be used to improve treatment.

Author Correction: Floating under a levitating liquid

Nature, Published online: 23 September 2020; doi:10.1038/s41586-020-2789-4Author Correction: Floating under a levitating liquid

Third-order nanocircuit elements for neuromorphic engineering

Nature, Published online: 23 September 2020; doi:10.1038/s41586-020-2735-5Electrophysical processes are used to create third-order nanoscale circuit elements, and these are used to realize a transistorless network that can perform Boolean operations and find solutions to a computationally hard graph-partitioning problem.

The first-ever image of a black hole is now a movie

Nature, Published online: 23 September 2020; doi:10.1038/d41586-020-02717-3Pictures created from old observations show the void’s stormy evolution over the past decade.
