Relocation sustains intestinal stem-cell numbers p.451

A dynamic mode of stem-cell regulation has been discovered. Intestinal stem cells use migration to maintain a large pool of multifunctional cells, perhaps endowing the organ with robust responses to injury.

Strain solves switch hitch for an antiferromagnetic material p.452

Applying strain to a material that has a type of magnetism called antiferromagnetism allows its magnetization to be fully switched with an electric current — making it appealing for use in next-generation magnetic memory devices.

Disease spread: heating and stirring the global viral soup p.455

Simulations show that rising global temperatures and changes in land use will drive new encounters between mammalian species. This could lead to an increase in virus- sharing events that might threaten both wildlife and humans.

A microscopic electric motor made of DNA p.456

The race is on to develop nanometre-scale motors for future tiny machines. The latest entry is a multi-component motor that self-assembles from DNA, harnesses Brownian motion to spin a rotor, and can wind up a molecular spring.
