Congratulations to Jonathan Wilde for winning the genesis poster award at the 74th Annual meeting of the Society for Developmental Biology. The title of his work was "GCN5 Restricts Diencephalic Size via a Novel Mechanism of Retinoic Acid Signaling". Jonathan is a member of Lee Niswander's laboratory at the University of Colorado, Denver.

Congratulations to the 2015 LASDB genesis award winners!

Congratulations to the recipients of the genesis best student poster awards at the 2015 meeting of the Latin American Society for Developmental Biology. They each received $1500 to attend the next Society for Developmental Biology meeting in Boston (July 2016). Former genesis Editor-in-Chief, Richard Behringer, presented the awards.

Special Issues

Special Issue:
Model Organism Databases


This special issue of Genesis focuses on Model organism databases (MODs) and provides an overview of the contents and technologies these resources provide to the biomedical research community. Papers in this special issue cover a broad range of issues regarding MODs, everything from user guides to sophisticated data querying interfaces aimed at guiding MOD users to leverage MOD content better to discussions that explain how data are gathered and validated.

CRISPr/Cas (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats-assiciated) technologies can be employed to induce targeted genetic mutation. In back-to-back articles published in genesis, Blitz et al. and Nakayama et al. each report CRISPr/Cas targeted transgenesis of Xenopus tropicalis pigmentation and eye development genes.
