A tribute to Suzanne Eaton
Like our entire community, GSA is devastated by the killing of Suzanne Eaton. We extend our deepest condolences to her family, friends, and colleagues, many of whom contributed to a touching tribute remembering her incredible accomplishments and impact, not only as a scientist, but as a person.
GENETICS Peer Review Program accepting applications through July 31
Receive training and mentoring in peer review from GENETICS editors, while reviewing manuscripts within your areas of interest and expertise. Applicants from anywhere in the world are encouraged to apply.
GSA Meetings
You can see and do more at TAGC 2020
You won’t have to pick and choose sessions at The Allied Genetics Conference in April 2020. Because community sessions and topic sessions won’t overlap in the schedule, you can tailor your schedule according to your interests.
Save the date for the 31st Fungal Genetics Conference
Plan now to attend the 31st Fungal Genetics Conference! The conference will be returning to the Asilomar Conference Grounds from March 9–14, 2021. #Fungal21 will feature all the events that make this conference one you can’t afford to miss, including pre-meeting workshops; exciting plenary, concurrent, and poster sessions; the Perkins/Metzenberg Lecture; and Poster Awards.
Take advantage of our partnership with Figshare
Since 2010, the GSA Journals have committed to making data publicly accessible, and our partnership with Figshare supports that commitment. Figshare can host large datasets, code freezes, and more—so you can archive all of the data associated with your manuscript together in one place, with no file type or file size restrictions.

ECS Leadership Spotlight — Nathaniel Noblett
Noblett’s research aims to better understand how neural tube defects develop by characterizing formation of the ventral nerve cord in C. elegans. As part of the Policy Subcommittee, he plans to promote an understanding of policy and advocacy among the wider scientific community by working with a diverse number of scientists from across the globe, gaining insight into the challenges and opportunities in their communities.
Faculty, Educators, & Mentors
Apply to the Promoting Active Learning & Mentoring (PALM) network by July 30
Are you a faculty member or postdoc interested in using active learning in your classroom? The PALM Network can connect you with an experienced mentor who will offer guidance and hands-on training in evidence-based teaching strategies. Apply to be a fellow or mentor by July 30.
Register for the 11th annual Biological Sciences Congressional District Visits
The Biological Sciences Congressional District Visits event enables scientists, graduate students, representatives of research facilities, and people affiliated with scientific collections to meet with their federal or state elected officials without traveling to Washington, DC. Participants may either invite their elected officials to visit their research facility or can meet at the policymaker's local office.
Community Announcements
EMBO I EMBL Symposium: Multiomics to Mechanisms - Challenges in Data Integration
This conference will provide a platform for bringing together leading researchers from computational biology, various omics fields, and technology development to present their latest work and discuss applications, future ideas, and the challenges for integrating large-scale biological data across different biological technologies and disciplines. A specific focus will be on discussing data integration of high-throughput technologies with molecular biology approaches.
EMBO Workshop: Creating Is Understanding: Synthetic Biology Masters Complexity
This workshop fosters the trust that creating is understanding. The programme focuses on four central questions that are geared toward basic research while being at the forefront of synthetic biology:
          How can engineering be used as an interpretive framework to biology?
          How can biology be interfaced with the non living?
          How can synthetic biology be used to reconstruct cellular systems?
          How is other biology possible through engineering?
EMBO I EMBL Symposium: Systems Genetics: From Genomes to Complex Traits
Next generation sequencing, genome editing, deep mutational scans, and single cell biology are opening up unprecedented opportunities to understand how genetic variation alters molecular mechanisms to cause phenotypic variation amongst individuals, including quantitative traits and human disease. This meeting will bring together groups using experimental, statistical, and mechanistic modelling approaches to address these questions at different scales and in diverse model systems, including for human disease.

Know of a great opportunity for early career scientists? Or do you have good news to announce about a GSA member?
We welcome submissions to both the GSA e-News (sent to all GSA members) and the Early Career Scientist Weekly (sent to student and postdoc GSA members). Items for the ECS Weekly include resources, awards, fellowships, grants, courses, and other opportunities applicable to early career scientists. News about GSA members includes new positions, book or op-ed publication, awards received, achievements, obits and others. We also invite other announcements relevant to GSA members, such as award nominations, new grant programs, etc.
Deadline for next issue: July 26, 2019. Send items (and feedback) to Cristy Gelling,
