Deadline Extended for Excellence in Journalism Award

02.03.2010
The Genetics Society of America (GSA) is extending the deadline for submissions for its Excellence in Research Journalism Award from March 1, 2010 to March 8, 2010. The GSA encourages journalists or their media organizations to take advantage of this extended deadline to submit online or print articles or television or radio broadcast reports for this award.

The Excellence in Research Journalism Award is designed to honor those journalists who provide outstanding coverage of basic genetic research including studies of model organisms that link to human biology.

Nominees do not have to be science beat journalists, but the piece being nominated must be on research that employs a non-human model organism, such as fruit flies (Drosophila), roundworms (C. elegans), mice, yeast, fungi or other organisms. Articles on human genetics testing or disease risk will not be considered.

International entries will be accepted, but all entries must be in English and produced for the first time during the 2009 calendar year. There is no fee or limit to the number of entries that may be submitted.

For an entry form, award criteria, and entry guidelines see http://www.genetics-gsa.org/pages/journalism_award.shtml. Deadline for entries is March 8, 2010.

Nominees and their nominators will be notified about the award in May. The award ceremony will take place in Boston, Massachusetts on June 15, 2010.

ABOUT THE GENETICS SOCIETY OF AMERICA

Founded in 1931, the Genetics Society of America (GSA) is the professional membership organization for geneticists and science educators. Its more than 4,000 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 the Genetics Society of America 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. GSA publishes GENETICS, the leading journal in the field. For more information about GSA, please visit www.genetics-gsa.org.

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...

Im Focus: Autonomous 3D scanner supports individual manufacturing processes

Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).

Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
