Life’s Blueprint: Celebrating World DNA Day 

Life’s Blueprint: Celebrating World DNA Day 

Marking the anniversary of the discovery of DNA’s double helix structure in 1953 and the completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003, we are commemorating World DNA Day this April 25th!

We have come a long way since 1953, and today we would like to use this occasion to highlight collections of new and exciting interdisciplinary research that has resulted from the groundbreaking discoveries made about the human genome.

Success Stories of 2022 – Genome Integrity

Success Stories of 2022 – Genome Integrity

This year’s addition of Genome Integrity to our network marks a significant three-way collaboration between ScienceOpen, Genome Integrity Journal, and CompuScript, which provides professional typesetting for the journal.

The open-access publications published in this journal helps researchers understand the processes that regulate the maintenance of genome integrity and how the maintenance affects aging and cancer development.

New: Open Access research in Genome Integrity

New: Open Access research in Genome Integrity

Effective genome integrity maintenance is required for normal cell division, tissue homeostasis, healthy organismal aging, and disease prevention such as cancer. Genome Integrity adds valuable research to our network, bringing up different research perspectives in genetics and life sciences.

Society journal in a box

According to a recently published LSE Impact Blog article, society publishing might just be the key to realizing an open access future. Committed to open science practices, ScienceOpen has been supporting scholarly society journals since its foundation in 2013 and continues to do so by integrating society research on the platform in the form of featured Collections.

To support open access scientific publishing and increase the discoverability of genetics and genomics research, ScienceOpen has partnered with the Genetics Society of America (GSA) to integrate the open access journal G3: Genes, Genomes, Genetics into the ScienceOpen discovery environment in the form of a featured collection.

How are researchers working with genetics content on ScienceOpen? Our users have curated collections on topics such as higher order chromatin architecture, CRISPR/Cas9 editing in human blood, genome engineering using CRISPR, and the measurement of glucocorticoid receptor signaling in major depression. We always welcome more researcher-led collections in genetics on ScienceOpen so contact us today for editor status!

GSA’s open access journal G3: Genes, Genomes, Genetics provides a forum for the publication of high-quality genetics and genomics research such as genome maps, single gene studies, genome‐wide association and QTL studies, as well as genome reports,  mutant screens, and advances in methods and technology. Furthermore, G3 has published thematic collections on Genomic PredictionMultiparental PopulationsGenetics of Immunity, and Genetics of Sex. As a featured collection on ScienceOpen, this journal is placed in a digital research environment of interactive tools that increases the discoverability of its findings.
