People often laugh about being “no good at math.” Unrecognized, however, is that about one-third of American adults are likely too innumerate to operate effectively in financial and health environments. Two numeric competencies conceivably matter—objective numeracy (ability to “run the numbers” correctly; like literacy but with numbers) and numeric self-efficacy (confidence that provides engagement and persistence in numeric tasks). We reasoned, however, that attaining objective numeracy’s benef...

High-risk human papillomaviruses (HR-HPVs) promote cervical cancer as well as a subset of anogenital and head and neck cancers. Due to their limited coding capacity, HPVs hijack the host cell’s DNA replication and repair machineries to replicate their own genomes. How this host–pathogen interaction contributes to genomic instability is unknown. Here, we report that HPV-infected cancer cells express high levels of RNF168, an E3 ubiquitin ligase that is critical for proper DNA repair following DNA...

Heat shock (HS) initiates rapid, extensive, and evolutionarily conserved changes in transcription that are accompanied by chromatin decondensation and nucleosome loss at HS loci. Here we have employed in situ Hi-C to determine how heat stress affects long-range chromatin conformation in human and Drosophila cells. We found that compartments and topologically associating domains (TADs) remain unchanged by an acute HS. Knockdown of Heat Shock Factor 1 (HSF1), the master transcriptional regulator o...
