Social media within the autism area this week served up a useful cheat sheet of standout analysis tweets to compensate for — plus a better option to devour preprints.
“Mixtures matter,” tweeted Giuseppe Testa, professor of molecular biology at Università Statale in Milan, Italy, in regards to the results of endocrine disruption throughout being pregnant on a toddler’s language improvement. The findings from his lab — summed up in a video as a part of his thread — “present the impression of real-life chemical publicity,” he wrote.
#Mixtures matter! Try our new research in @ScienceMagazine the place we present the impression of real-life chemical publicity throughout being pregnant on language improvement, integrating epidemiology and experimental neurobiology (1/14) https://t.co/8HbBZHPIkG

@SOToxicology @ATS_EOPH Groundbreaking research demonstrating hostile developmental results of toxicant mixtures. Regulation primarily based on publicity limits to single toxicants are misrepresenting threats. https://t.co/EfwNLvGRgv

Fernanda Pinheiro, analysis group chief on the Human Technopole analysis institute in Milan, flagged the paper as “phenomenal work” and worthy of a “weekend learn alert” — and referred to as out an accompanying Science Views piece.
Weekend learn alert ????
Phenomenal work by the crew of @gtesta72!
Take a look at his abstract beneath and on the accompanying Science Views piece (refs. on the????).
Congrats to all of the authors ???????? BRA-VO! https://t.co/SCSVozpkGi

Maria Chahrour, assistant professor of genetics and neuroscience on the College of Texas Southwestern Medical Middle in Dallas, shared a brand new paper wherein she and her colleagues recognized novel coding and noncoding candidate genetic variants for autism amongst a cohort of consanguineous households.
I am pleased to share our newest paper in Genomic Medication @NaturePortfolio. @IslamOguzTuncay led the work to investigate current shared ancestry in a familial cohort & recognized coding and noncoding #Autism candidate variants. https://t.co/eyF6OGbHzR????

Debra Silver, affiliate professor of molecular genetics and microbiology at Duke, shared a thread on a brand new preprint that exhibits how the autism-linked gene DDX3X controls cortical improvement, with totally different results in female and male mice. The findings supply perception into DDX3X syndrome in folks, Silver wrote.
Excited to share our latest pre-print led by @mariahhoye– We uncover that DDX3X controls cortical improvement by influencing cell cycle and translational dynamics- giving new insights into @ddx3x syndrome! 1/nhttps://t.co/1NkOAGHa0Y

And talking of preprints, Twitter was all aflutter on Wednesday feting the addition of in-line figures for all on the preprint server bioRxiv.
“Countless twitter wars” have been waged over the dearth of consensus on how finest to format writer PDFs, wrote Richard Sever, assistant director at Chilly Spring Harbor Laboratory Press and a cofounder of bioRxiv and its sister server, medRxiv. “However clearly many readers need figs in-line.”
Now they’ll “print (or save as PDF) all articles with in-line figures, no matter how the authors initially formatted them,” he wrote.
New bioRxiv function: in-line figures for everybody!
Now you can print (or save as PDF) all articles with in-line figures, no matter how the authors origiunally formatted them 1/n pic.twitter.com/jVkjjgM3K7

Others rejoiced over the “glow up,” hailing “in-line figures ceaselessly” and an finish to “violently scrolling all the way down to the photographs” in a sequence of quote tweets.
“Nice. Now let’s by no means speak about this once more,” wrote Andrew Pruszynski, affiliate professor of physiology and pharmacology and psychology at Western College in London, Ontario, Canada.
