Today’s recommended paper is:

Bimodal control of Hoxd gene transcription in the spinal cord defines two regulatory subclusters
Patrick Tschopp, Alix J. Christen and Denis Duboule (2012)
Development 139 (5), 929-939

Submitted by Rachael Inglis:
“This is a great example of new results enriching our understanding of a classical developmental phenomenon: the co-linear expression of the Hox gene cluster from anterior to posterior along the spinal cord, which actually turns out to be two sub-clusters that are regulated independently and correspond to the regions of the spinal cord that innervate the forelimb and the hindlimb.”
