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.

Evolution of Microbial Growth Traits Under Serial Dilution [Population and Evolutionary Genetics]

Selection of mutants in a microbial population depends on multiple cellular traits. In serial-dilution evolution experiments, three key traits are the lag time when transitioning from starvation to growth, the exponential growth rate, and the yield (number of cells per unit resource). Here, we investigate how these traits evolve in laboratory evolution experiments using a minimal model of population dynamics, where the only interaction between cells is competition for a single limiting resource. We find...

qRf8-1, a Novel QTL for the Fertility Restoration of Maize CMS-C Identified by QTL-seq

C-type cytoplasmic male sterility (CMS-C), one of the three major CMS types in maize, has a promising application prospect in hybrid seed production. However, the complex genetic mechanism underlying the fertility restoration of CMS-C remains poorly understood. The maize inbred line A619 is one of the rare strong restorer lines carrying the restorer gene Rf4, but different fertility segregation ratios are found in several F2 populations derived from crosses between isocytoplasmic allonucleus CMS-C lines and...
