Genetics Society of America selects 5 geneticists to receive society's 2014 Awards
Date:1/29/2014

ecently the mechanistic basis for neurological diseases such as ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). In parallel with this landmark science, he has worked to expand the toolbox available to Drosophila genetics. Bellen is a leading scientist in the Drosophila Gene Disruption Project effort to disrupt and tag Drosophila genes on a comprehensive scale, an effort initiated with previous Beadle Award winners Gerry Rubin and Allan Spradling. Moreover, his laboratory developed simple mapping methods, introduced in collaboration with Koen Venken a highly versatile transgene system named P[acman], created genomic P[acman] libraries covering the whole fly genome, generated in collaboration with Thom Kaufman a library of transgenic flies with molecularly defined duplications covering more than 95% of the X chromosome, developed the MiMIC transposable element, and created a library of 6,000 MiMIC strains that permits manipulations of most fly genes. These efforts have provided ~15,000 new stocks with single transposable element insertions, which enable mutational analysis of ~75% of Drosophila genes. These technologies, now used by the majority of Drosophila labs, have advanced almost all fields of biology. From technological innovations to development biology and neurodegeneration, as well as the training of more than 60 graduate students and postdoctoral fellows (the majority of whom hold faculty positions), the breadth of Bellen's influence on the genetics community is extensive.

A longtime member of GSA, Dr. Bellen's presence in the community is broad and deep. He has participated in review panels, editorial boards, numerous curriculum development boards and task forces, has authored over 200 publications, books, chapters, and has presented his work in countless seminars and symposia.

The George W. Beadle Award, established by GSA in 1999, honors individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the community of genetics re
