Now's the time for Fly

Fly is the first international peer-reviewed journal to focus on Drosophila research. Having expanded the editorial board to include even more experts in the field of Drosophila from all over the world, Fly is quickly becoming the 'go to' journal for Drosophila research.

Jan Larsson

Professor Jan Larsson leads a research group at the Department of Molecular Biology, Umeå University in northern Sweden.

His research interest concerns chromosome-wide gene regulation and chromosome-specific adaptations. Using the two chromosome-specific systems MSL and POF in Drosophila his group focuses on:

  • Outlining the function of chromatin signatures and RNA interactions in targeting and regulatory mechanisms.
  • Delineating the link between chromosome-wide targeting and chromosome segregation.
  • Understanding the evolution of chromosome-wide gene targeting and regulation, sex-chromosomes and the role of heterochromatin and RNA interactions in these processes.

Besides science, Jan has recently developed a passion for forestry and he often spends his free time in the forest equipped with his chain saw, tree felling wedges and an ax.
