The Journal of Heredity (not to be confused with the journal Heredity) is a scientific journal concerned with heredity in a biological sense, i.e. genetics. It was established in 1910 as the American Breeders Magazine of the American Breeder s Association, both of which changed names in 1915 to the Journal of Heredity (volume 5) and the American Genetic Association. The Journal of Heredity is indexed in Science Citation Index, Current Contents/Life Sciences, MEDLINE (Index Medicus), EMBASE, BIOSIS Previews, and Chemical Abstracts Service. The journal publishes articles in the following categories: and, on invitation:
High-speed evolution in the lab – Geneticists evaluate cost-effective genome analysis
Life implies change. And this holds true for genes as well. Organisms require a flexible genome in order to adapt to changes in the local environment. Christian Schlötterer and his team from the Institute ...
Evolutionary study aids battle against parasitic diseases
A University of Stirling study has shed new light on the way parasite lifecycles have evolved and may help scientists develop more effective plans for managing the many diseases they cause.
Iberian pig genome remains unchanged after five centuries
A team of Spanish researchers have obtained the first partial genome sequence of an ancient pig. Extracted from a sixteenth century pig found at the site of the Montsoriu Castle in Girona, the data obtained indicates that ...
Gene immigration continues despite fragmented landscapes
Human activity like clearing land for agriculture and mining does not threaten the ability of some plants to share genes via pollen carried by birds.
