A new associate editor is joining GENETICS. We’re excited to welcome Xiajing Tong to the editorial team.

Xiajing Tong
Associate Editor

Xiajing Tong obtained her BS from the University of Science and Technology of China and earned her PhD from the Chinese Academy of Sciences. She conducted her postdoctoral training with Joshua Kaplan at Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, focusing on the regulation of synaptic transmission by autism-associated genes using C. elegans as a model organism. Currently, she is an Associate Professor of Biology at ShanghaiTech University. Her lab utilizes C. elegans as a model organism, along with studies in mammals, to investigate how sex-specific synaptic transmission and neural circuits mediate sex-differential physiology and behaviors.
