To kick off a year of celebration, Subject Editors have highlighted their favourite articles from the past decade. Of the nine top publications selected, one was from the research group of Julian Blow is being highlighted.

Only published last month, “The role of DDK and Treslin–MTBP in coordinating replication licensing and pre-initiation complex formation” from the Blow lab is a favourite of the cell and molecular biology subject editor. This “particularly comprehensive and insightful study” explains in detail the finely tuned activity that is required for the initiation of DNA replication. The editor concluded, “this is a beautiful study that typifies the quality and depth that we welcome in Open Biology.”
