Early and Real-Time Detection of Seasonal Influenza Onset

We propose a new method that identifies the beginning of the yearly flu season. This is done by using several different data sources, including searches for flu-related symptoms on Google and phone call logs to a specialized medical phone service.

Adaptive developmental plasticity: Compartmentalized responses to environmental cues and to corresponding internal signals provide phenotypic flexibility

We quantified the effect of temperature and ecdysone hormone manipulations on post-growth tissue patterning in an experimental model of adaptive developmental plasticity, the butterfly Bicyclus anynana.
