Kondo effect and spin–orbit coupling in graphene quantum dots

Nature Communications, Published online: 14 October 2021; doi:10.1038/s41467-021-26149-3 The Kondo effect has been observed in a variety of systems, including carbon nanotube quantum dots and graphene in the presence of impurities. Here, the authors report the observation of the Kondo effect in bilayer graphene quantum dots and study its interplay with weak spin-orbit coupling.

Morc3 silences endogenous retroviruses by enabling Daxx-mediated histone H3.3 incorporation

Nature Communications, Published online: 14 October 2021; doi:10.1038/s41467-021-26288-7 Endogenous retroviruses (ERVs) compose a significant portion of mammalian genomes; however, how ERVs are regulated is not well known. Here the authors performed a genome-wide sgRNA screen to identify Morc3 as a mediator of ERV silencing. They show Morc3 associates with the H3.3 chaperone Daxx, and that loss o
