The Genetics Society of America announces its 2010 award recipients
Date:1/28/2010

The Genetics Society of America (GSA) is pleased to announce the recipients of its five awards for distinguished service to the field of genetics. These awards represent sustained activity and contributions by members of the genetics community. The individuals who receive these awards were nominated and selected by their peers in recognition of the exceptional value of their work to promote further understanding within the field of genetics.

"The Genetics Society of America awards shine a spotlight on the scientific achievements and contributions of our members. This year's awards illustrate the power of basic research on nonhuman organisms as a pathway to understanding human biology, health, and disease," said Sherry A. Marts, GSA Executive Director.

The recipients of these awards represent several of the model organism research communities within GSA including Saccharomyces cerevisae (yeast), Drosophila (fruit fly), and C. elegans (the roundworm). The awards and their recipients are listed below:

  • Recipient: Alexander Tzagoloff, Ph.D., Columbia University.
Award: Thomas Hunt Morgan Medal for lifetime contributions in the field of genetics.

Using yeast as a model system, Dr. Tzagoloff has defined the biogenesis and function of the mitochondrial respiratory chain. He was the first to systematically define the nearly 400 nuclear (PET) genes required for respiration in yeast. His work has not only influenced yeast researchers, but has also affected research in human disease, apoptosis and cancer genetics. Through the years he has developed an extensive collection of yeast strains, which he has generously shared with colleagues worldwide.

  • Recipient: Thomas Cline, Ph.D., University of California, Berkeley.
Award: Edward Novitski Prize for exhibiting an extraordinary level of creativity and intellectual ingenuity in solving a significant problem in genetics.
