searchers and who exemplify the qualities of its namesake as a respected academic, administrator, and public servant. Beadle (1903) served as the President of GSA in 1946; he was awarded the 1958 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for his work with Edward L. Tatum in discovering that genes act by regulating definite chemical events.

Recipient: Charles Boone, PhD, University of Toronto
Award: Edward Novitski Prize

Dr. Boone is Professor and Canada Research Chair at the University of Toronto's Donnelly Centre for Cellular and Biomolecular Research and Department of Molecular Genetics, and has risen to the top of the emergent discipline of post-genome systems biology. His visionary, creative approach to science has focused on the global mapping of genetic interaction networks. Dr. Boone invented the Synthetic Genetic Array (SGA) technology, transforming the field of yeast genetics. SGA provides an automated method to both cross thousands of specific strains carrying precise mutations and map large-scale yeast genetic interactions. These network maps offer researchers a functional wiring diagram of the cell, which clusters genes into specific pathways and reveals functional connections. His innovative method provides insight into difficult human genetic problems, including the origin of complex inherited disease and phenotypes, and it has catalyzed work in labs worldwide.

Dr. Boone serves on the editorial boards of both GENETICS and G3: Genes|Genomes|Genetics. He is also an HHMI international research scholar; a Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology, American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research; and holds the Tanenbaum Chair in Molecular Medicine at the University of Toronto. Dr. Boone previously received the Ira Herskowitz Award from GSA's yeast genetics community.
