Save over $100 on your #Worm19 registration
Are you planning to attend the 22nd International C. elegans Conference next month? You'll save $150 when you sign up by June 17, compared to registering on-site. And, if your abstract has been accepted to #Worm19, make sure you register for the conference so you can present your work.
#Worm19 poster invite program submissions are due today
Are you a student or postdoc presenting a poster at the International C. elegans Conference? GSA can help you amplify your work and seek expert feedback by inviting specific scientists to attend your poster presentation. Today is the last day to submit your request, so act fast!
Sign up for the GENETICS Peer Review Training Workshop at #Worm19
Interested in boosting your resume at the C. elegans conference? Look no further than the GENETICS Peer Review Training Workshop, which will help you become a better author and hone skills that are central to scientific success.
Check out the GSA Journals Spotlight
The GSA Journals, GENETICS and G3: Genes|Genomes|Genetics, are proud to present our annual Spotlight booklets for research published in 2018. Each Spotlight is a showcase of the excellent research and scholarship published over the course of the year, along with a selection of striking images submitted by our authors.
Publish Your Mutant Screen with G3
Have you performed a mutant screen whose results are going unshared in your lab notebook? We’ve got an article format for that. The Mutant Screen Report provides a succinct format and follows a structured template, making it fast and easy for authors to submit, for reviewers to rapidly assess, and for readers to easily understand the screen and its results.
Unequal divisions of death
In GENETICS, Mishra et al. found that the apoptotic cell death pathway regulates asymmetric division in Caenorhabditis elegans.
Nested CRISPR for cloning-free fluorescent tags
Vicencio, Martínez-Fernández, Serrat, and Cerón describe a more effective way to use CRISPR to insert longer stretches of DNA into C. elegans genomes.

Early Career Leadership — Emma Powell
Powell's research centers around characterizing an unknown kinase in yeast that is responsive to nutrient changes in the cell and may be involved in regulating carbohydrate biosynthesis. As Co-chair of the Policy Subcommittee, she looks forward to leading their team in building resources that provide GSA members with opportunities to learn more about science policy and build their advocacy skills.

Community Announcements
Submit your nominations for the 2021 Fly Board election now through August 1
The Fly Board is a group of your peers who carry out a number of important functions for the Drosophila research community. As part of its strong commitment to represent this diverse community, the group’s 2019 Elections Board has started an Open Nomination Process for all elected positions on the Fly Board. They invite you to nominate people who you think would do a great job representing the fly community. Self-nominations are also welcome.
FASEB introduces fact sheet on humanized mouse models
FASEB developed the “Humanized Mouse Models: Using Human Cells to Conquer Disease” fact sheet that highlights the advantages and limitations of this research model. This new resource will bolster FASEB’s broader advocacy efforts regarding the important role of animal models in scientific discovery.
Attend a science career fair at Harvard University
Science Careers has partnered with Harvard University and the Faculty of Arts and Sciences Postdoctoral Association to produce a unique career fair open to all. Join for a chance to meet with top scientific organizations and get important advice from career experts.
Check out an event hosted by NYAS: “Genomics Enters the Clinic: What Should Savvy Consumers Know?”
The New York Academy of Sciences, jointly with the Aspen Brain Institute, and The Hastings Center, will bring together scientists, ethicists, philosophers, and other experts, for an evening public event titled Genomics Enters the Clinic: What Should Savvy Consumers Know? The program will examine the history of genomics and recent advances in genomic technologies with a focus on the science and ethics of gene editing, cancer genetics, reproductive medicine, and direct-to-consumer tests.
