Proteostasis is required for normal flower development in Arabidopsis thaliana. Plants that have mutations in both the small heat shock protein BOB1 as well as the proteasome subunit RPT2a produce flowers with ectopic ovules and radialized organs visible on the margins of their sepals. See Silverblatt-Buser et al. G3 2018: 1379–1390.
As part of our mission, GSA helps scientists develop their skills and achieve their career goals. We design programs and initiatives to provide experience, training, mentorship, and community.
Become a peer reviewer for GENETICS
Get real-world peer review training and experience by participating in the GENETICS Peer Review Training Program. You will receive online training and advice from GENETICS editors as you become a reviewer for manuscripts submitted to the journal.
Develop your skills, join a thriving network, and demonstrate your abilities by participating in the GSA’s Early Career Leadership and Professional Development Program. Work in teams with mentors to propose, develop, and implement initiatives that address unmet needs for the early career scientist community.
