Our paper on a new replication system for targeted evolution is featured on the cover of the March 2014 issue of Nature Chemical Biology. It is featured as one of a collection of papers on designing biology, elaborated upon in a very nice associated editorial called “Building up biology”. Additional nice write-ups about this work can be found here and here.
