Hear from inspiring minds in the field of genetics in GSA’s interview podcast series, designed to help you discover and share interesting perspectives—even when you only have five minutes to spare. We summarize their insights into bite-sized “SNPets.”

Topics include:

  • the value of research organisms
  • interviewees’ work
  • the importance of the scientific community
  • career

SNPets are hosted by 2022 GSA President E. Jane Hubbard, who created the project with the GSA Public Communication and Engagement Committee.

Miriam Lewin, producer; Jeff Lunden and Max Fine, editors; Sheila Gaffney, transcription assistant.

Tracy Johnson
Tracy Johnson on broad implications of splicing in yeast

Featured SNPet

Tracy Johnson’s findings on splicing likely have broad implications beyond yeast, her favorite research organism. Johnson considers the advances in RNA sequencing technology that have accelerated her work as “transformative”—and she believes we have much more to discover.

E. Jane Hubbard

Join me and our genetics colleagues as they discuss the sometimes-twisty roads to their discoveries, how their research organisms made it all possible, and what the scientific community means to them.

E. Jane Hubbard, 2022 President of the GSA Board of Directors
