    • Abstract


      het-s/het-S incompatibility is one of only a handful of fungal heterokaryon incompatibility systems that have begun to be molecularly analysed (for a review see Saupe 2000). The spore killer phenotype also is one of only a few segregation ratio distortions that has been studied in any detail. Finally the [HET-s] prion is one of only three examples known in non-mammalian systems (for a review see Wickneret al 1999). Clearly thehet-s/het-S story intersects with several exciting areas of research that offer many opportunities for young scientists.

      Forthcoming Special issue.

    • To trigger further research on plant mitochondria, the Journal of Biosciences is bringing out a special issue titled "Plant Mitochondria: Properties and Interactions with Other Organelles".

      Plant mitochondria are quite distinct and have unique features, such as a cyanide-insensitive alternate pathway. They also interact with chloroplasts to optimize photosynthetic carbon assimilation.

      Submissions are welcome until 30 July 2023. The contributions can be original articles, short communications, reviews, or mini-reviews on any topic related to plant mitochondria.

      Authors can submit their articles online at https://www.editorialmanager.com/jbsc/default2.aspx
