Dear Drosophila researchers,

We are writing to inform you about a new journal, "Genes to Cells".  Genes to Cells is a young journal whose first volume appeared in 1996.  Under the chief editorship of Jun-ichi Tomizawa, it publishes papers that unravel basic mechanisms underlying biological events in prokaryotes and eukaryotes, and those describing important aspects of molecular and cellular biology.  It is covered by Medline/Index Meducus, and offers rapid and fair reviews, fast publication schedule, and 25 free reprints with no page charges.  A description on this journal can be found in the following web page:

The following are selected papers from the latest three issues:

Sample issues will be displayed at the Fly Meeting to be held in Bellview, WA next week.  Starting this April, full text of 4 issues of 1999, as well as all 1998 issues will be available on line, free of charge.  We encourage you to take a look at this new journal and submit your work to it.
