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.
Get leadership experience and serve your fellow early career scientists by organizing a GSA Career Development Symposium. GSA offers funding for student and postdoc members to organize local symposia that provide career and professional development opportunities for early career scientists.
Today’s scientists must develop many important skills that are learned outside the lab. No matter which sector of the workforce you work in or want to join, GSA Conferences offer professional development workshops that help set you up for success.
Gonzalo Castro de la Mata works across disciplines to balance economic development and environmental conservation. Here we talk about approaching problems from different perspectives and making time to live while you work. In the Decoding Life series, we talk to geneticists with diverse career paths, tracing the many directions possible after research training. This series […]
Students, postdocs, academic faculty, and industry researchers will all find benefits at the new Industry Sessions at TAGC, to be held April 22–26 2020 in the Washington DC region. When industry scientists and academic labs collaborate, both society and science benefit. That’s one of two big-picture messages Kailene Simon hopes will be conveyed through a […]
