Two very interesting papers were published this month. The first is a Zika project with the Contagion on Networks team showing that the asymmetric transmission across sexes leads to a double epidemic transitions; the paper was published in PNAS. The second one is the result of an SFI working group, which started by studying the strategies of algae life cycles and ended up re-discovering game theory by studying political dynamics on modular networks; this crazy paper was published in Scientific Reports.
