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.

Invasion and Extinction Dynamics of Mating Types Under Facultative Sexual Reproduction [Population and Evolutionary Genetics]

In sexually reproducing isogamous species, syngamy between gametes is generally not indiscriminate, but rather restricted to occurring between complementary self-incompatible mating types. A longstanding question regards the evolutionary pressures that control the number of mating types observed in natural populations, which ranges from two to many thousands. Here, we describe a population genetic null model of this reproductive system, and derive expressions for the stationary probability distribution of the number of mating types, the establishment...

Involvement of a G Protein Regulatory Circuit in Alternative Oxidase Production in Neurospora crassa

The Neurospora crassa nuclear aod-1 gene encodes an alternative oxidase that functions in mitochondria. The enzyme provides a branch from the standard electron transport chain by transferring electrons directly from ubiquinol to oxygen. In standard laboratory strains, aod-1 is transcribed at very low levels under normal growth conditions. However, if the standard electron transport chain is disrupted, aod-1 mRNA expression is induced and the AOD1 protein is produced. We previously identified a strain of N....
