Publications

GSA connects you to the field through a range of scholarly and community publications: our peer-reviewed journals offer two distinct platforms for communicating high-quality original research; our blog brings perspective to your research and career; and our newsletters keep you up to date with the latest opportunities and news from your community.

Microscope image from a cre-driver mouse strain developed with the MiniPromoter Ple155 (PCP2), which restricts expression to bipolar cells in the retina. This Ple155 (PCP2)-icre/ERT2 male mouse was fed a tamoxifen diet to induce icre expression, which removed a loxP flanked stop cassette, allowing expression of tdTomato (red). Bipolar cells were identified by co-staining with antibody against PCP2 (green), and merge (yellow). This is one of 27 cre-driver strains for the brain and eye that Korecki et al. have produced using knock-ins at the mouse genome docking site 5′ of Hprt and an improved cre tamoxifen inducible-first, constitutive ready allele (icre/f3/ERT2/f3). See Korecki et al., pp 1155–1177.

Journal: GENETICS

Rediscover GENETICS.

GENETICS publishes high-quality genetics and genomics research that expands scientific boundaries—we’ve been building the field since 1916. With its broad readership, rich history, and responsive editors, GENETICS brings the latest in publishing innovations to the communities it serves. We invite you to submit your research and discover the fast turnaround times and helpful review process for yourself.

Journal: G3: Genes|Genomes|Genetics

Good data, shared widely.

Get your useful data out into the world by publishing in G3: Genes|Genomes|Genetics. G3 publishes high quality foundational research, particularly studies that generate useful genetic information, such as mutant screens, single gene studies, genome maps, genome sequence data, GWAS and QTL studies, software, data resources, and new methods. The Editorial Board of G3 believes that rapid dissemination of such data lays the foundation for many important insights.

Why publish with GSA?

We treat authors as colleagues, not adversaries. Your time is important—and so is your research. Peer editors oversee the review process and give you clear guidance on how to address any reviewer comments; our helpful editorial staff keep the process moving and on time. We make it easy to submit: no formatting requirements on initial submission. Our dedicated editors work hard to keep time to first decision at around a month. And because we’re agile and community-driven, we’ve long been at the forefront of publishing innovations.

The review experience has been the single most useful and pleasant of my career. The reviews were constructive and fair, the editor provided exceptionally clear guidance, and turn-around on the revision was lightning fast.

Overlapping but Distinct Sequences Play Roles in the Insulator and Promoter Activities of the Drosophila BEAF-Dependent scs Insulator [Gene Expression]

Chromatin domain insulators are thought to help partition the genome into genetic units called topologically associating domains (TADs). In Drosophila, TADs are often separated by inter-TAD regions containing active housekeeping genes and associated insulator binding proteins. This raises the question of whether insulator binding proteins are involved primarily in chromosomal TAD architecture or gene activation, or if these two activities are linked. The Boundary Element-Associated Factor of 32 kDa (BEAF-32, or BEAF for short) is...

Human-Genetic Ancestry Inference and False Positives in Forensic Familial Searching

In forensic familial search methods, a query DNA profile is tested against a database to determine if the query profile represents a close relative of a database entrant. One challenge for familial search is that the calculations may require specification of allele frequencies for the unknown population from which the query profile has originated. The choice of allele frequencies affects the rate at which non-relatives are erroneously classified as relatives, and allele-frequency misspecification can substantially...
