Bite Size Standards

Bite Size Standards
http://www.bitesizestandards.com/

Bite Size Standards offers concise web development tutorials, tips and tricks written by designers and developers who are passionate about web standards. Bite Size Standards was conceived by John Oxton in 2005. Busy web designers don’t always have time to read or write lengthy tutorials, but a daily “bite” of useful information, taken or given, could be good for the soul. Early in 2006 he gathered a small team of experts who—with little to no help from John—brought this multi-author blogging experiment to life.

Journal of Genetics

Journal of Genetics

Journal of Genetics
http://www.ias.ac.in/jgenet/

The Journal of Genetics is the oldest English language journal in genetics and was founded by W. Bateson and R. C. Punnett in 1910, and later edited by J. B. S. Haldane. When Haldane and his wife, Helen Spurway, emigrated to India in 1957, they brought the journal with them. Haldane edited the journal from India until his death in 1964, after which Helen Spurway continued to publish the journal with Madhav Gadgil and H. Sharat Chandra (Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore) and Suresh Jayakar (Laboratorio de Genetica Biochimica ed Evoluzionistica, Pavia) as editors. Upon Helen Spurway’s death in 1977, the journal ceased publication for several years (the last issue published by her was Vol. 63 No. 2 of December 1977). In 1985, the Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore, resumed publication of the journal with the permission of Lady Naomi Mitchison, Haldane’s sister and heir to the Haldane estate. The first issue published by the Indian Academy of Sciences was Vol. 64. No. 1 of July 1985. Since then, the journal continues to be published by the Indian Academy of Sciences as three issues each year (in April, August and December), forming one volume. The journal retains its traditional interest in evolutionary research that is of relevance to geneticists, even if not explicitly genetic in nature. Journal of Genetics covers all areas of genetics and evolution, but a contribution must have one of these subjects as its focus and be of interest to geneticists for acceptability. We publish original research papers, review articles, commentaries on papers recently published elsewhere, as well as essays of a more general nature on ideas and trends in genetics and evolutionary biology. In each issue (starting April 2004), we also publish one ‘classic’ paper from the Journal of Genetics archives, accompanied by a commentary placing the paper in modern context.
