Minghao and Fabien from our Cell Fate and Gene Regulation Laboratory at the Francis Crick Institute have published, respectively, new papers on how temporal control of a master regulator (IME1) drives sporulation in budding yeast, and how transcription of the mating-type regulated lncRNA IRT1 (which helps control IME1 transcription) is governed by the TORC1 and PKA signaling pathways. Definitely a couple of good reads, and more exciting stuff in the works!
