Courtier-Orgogozo will examine how the pleiotropic genes that are hotspots of morphological change can fine-sculpt detailed features of organisms during evolution. Don't miss the #DROS17 late abstract deadline on Monday! http://buff.ly/2jDvYn3
Don’t miss out on this year’s Annual Drosophila Research Conference: The late abstract deadline is January 23, 2017 and the early registration discount ends February 3, 2017. Check out the fantasti…

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.

Research published in G3 suggests that enhancer sharing is common in eukaryotes and enhancer-promoter distance is an important layer of information in gene regulation.
To boost transcription of a target gene, enhancer sequences must make contact with the gene’s promoter. This crucial meeting is mediated by interacting proteins and the formation of chromatin loops…

Yeast research sheds light on the cellular defect behind the neurological disorder pontocerebellar hypoplasia type 1B (PCH1B). People with PCH1B have a mutated copy of EXOSC3, an important gene for the RNA exosome.
The Saccharomyces Genome Database (SGD) provides comprehensive integrated biological information for the budding yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

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.
