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.

Rachel T. Cox

Rachel T. Cox, PhD is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Uniformed Services University in Bethesda, Maryland, U.S.A.

She has had her independent research group for the past twelve years where they use Drosophila to identify and characterize genes required to support mitochondrial function during development and normal physiological homeostasis.

After working in Maize and C. elegans laboratories as an undergraduate, she fell in love with Drosophila genetics and developmental biology in graduate school and has never looked back.

Having published research in a variety of journals, Rachel is a welcome addition to the Fly Editorial Board. If you're not already familiar with her work, seek out the examples below:

  • Sheard, K. M., Thibault-Sennett, S. A., Sen, A., Shewmaker, F. and Cox, R. T. (2020) Clueless forms dynamic, insulin-responsive bliss particles sensitive to stress.  Developmental Biology, 459(2):149-160.
  • Sen, A., Karasik, A., Shanmuganathan, A., Mirkovic, E., Koutmos, M., and Cox, R. T. (2016) Loss of the mitochondrial protein-only Ribonuclease P complex causes aberrant tRNA processing and lethality in Drosophila. Nucleic Acids Research 44(13):6409-6422.
  • Sen, A. and Cox R. T. (2016) Clueless is a conserved ribonucleoprotein that binds the ribosome at the mitochondrial outer membrane.  Biology Open 5(2):195-203.
