- October 2012: A few mutations made a fly species dependent on a cactus
Virginie Orgogozo and her team explained how a fly species became dependent on a cactus from North American's Sonoran desert. Due to mutations in a single gene, this fly became unable to produce important molecules required for growth and reproduction and is now dependent on particular compounds that are only found in the cactus. Surprisingly, the mutations responsible for this cactus dependence also confer a short-term advantage to flies living on the cactus.
This work was published in Science on September 28th 2012.
- September 2012: Watching the initial stages of a DNA repair mechanism in real-time to better understand how cancers arise
The research team led by Terence Strick of the Institut Jacques Monod, in collaboration with researchers from the University of Bristol (UK) and Rockefeller University (USA), has for the first time been able to watch unfold in real-time the initial stages of a DNA repair mechanism which is still not yet well understood. Using a single-molecule method applied to a bacterial model of transcription-coupled repair, the researchers have understood how multiple actors come together to initiate DNA repair with high fidelity.
These studies are published online on September 9 2012 in the journal Nature.

- Segmentation is the secret behind the extraordinary diversification of animals.
Segmentation, the repetition of identical anatomical units, seems to be the secret behind the diversity and longevity of the largest and most common animal groups on Earth. Investigators from the CNRS and Université Paris Diderot (amongst others Guillaume Balavoine et Michel Vervoort at the Institut Jacques Monod) have shown that this characteristic was inherited from a common segmented ancestor thought to have lived 600 million years ago and whose presence “changed the face of the world”.
This discovery was published in Science on 16 July 2010.
