Over the past decade, it has become clear that insect endosymbionts are ubiquitous and central to the biology of their hosts. #DROS17 speaker Bruno Lemaitre is investigating the interaction between Drosophila and its endosymbiont Spiroplasma poulsonii. Late abstract deadline is on Monday! http://buff.ly/2iOugLu

Sometimes a cell must divide asymmetrically—producing two daughter cells with different developmental fates. At #DROS17 Marcos González-Gaitán will speak on the mechanisms of biased dispatch of signaling endosomes in asymmetrical division. http://buff.ly/2iOXPN5

FDA proposal would see animals whose genomes have been intentionally altered (including by gene editing) examined for safety and efficacy in a process similar to that for new drugs.

Story
Tagline
Professional scientific society that brings together those studying fundamental questions of genetics
Introduction

Founded in 1931, the Genetics Society of America  (GSA) is the professional membership organization for scientific researchers, educators, bioengineers, bioinformaticians and others interested in the field of genetics. Its 5,000 members work to advance knowledge in the basic mechanisms of inheritance, from the molecular to the population level. The GSA is dedicated to promoting research in genetics and to facilitating communication among geneticists worldwide through its conferences, including the biennial conference on Model Organisms to Human Biology, an interdisciplinary meeting on current and cutting edge topics in genetics research, as well as annual and biennial meetings that focus on the genetics of particular organisms, including C. elegans, Drosophila, fungi, mice, yeast, and zebrafish. GSA publishes GENETICS, a leading journal in the field since 1916, and  G3: Genes|Genomes|Genetics, an open-access journal launched in 2011. For more information about GSA, please visit www.genetics-gsa.org. Also follow GSA on Facebook at facebook.com/GeneticsGSA and on Twitter @GeneticsGSA.
