Our August GENETICS cover features a colorful karyotype from the Yeast Art Project. This design, made up of yeast engineered to produce different pigments, was “printed” onto a Petri dish by an acoustic droplet ejection robot. As the yeast colonies grew, they produced pigments and formed the picture! ?: Jasmie Temple, Boeke Lab. Visit www.yeastart.org for more details and more works of art!

Our gorgeous G3 cover for July is an oil painting by Julia B. Smiley. Titled “Walnut Bayou Lane”, the piece depicts a walnut orchard near Winters, CA. Walnuts are an important agricultural product and the focus of new genomics research published by Stevens et al. in G3. Check out the link in our bio for more info!
