Rick Friedman, Dana Frisch, Marian Moser Jones


Rick Friedman, an award-winning photographer based in Boston, produced the images of Mark Fishman for our cover story this month. Rick travels extensively, shooting for numerous publications, including Time, Newsweek, The New York Times, Discover, People, and Sports Illustrated. Books that feature his work include one on Hillary Clinton, The Gourmet Prescription, Scientists at Work, and a current assignment, South End Baseball, featuring an inner-city baseball program in Boston.

Dana Frisch has enjoyed the sights of New York since moving here last summer from Toronto, but is puzzled about why all maps of North America appear to end at the US/Canada border. She is spending the summer avoiding the heat and interning at Genome Technology while pursuing a master’s in science and environmental reporting at New York University. And no, Dana does not end all her sentences with ‘eh.’

Since joining the company in October 2000, Marian Moser Jones (“At Lynx, Out with Russell, In with Corcoran,” p. 20) has climbed four rungs on the GenomeWeb (step)ladder. Marian, who started out as a daily news reporter for, became the founding managing editor and then chief editor of GT’s sister publication BioArray News. After a year establishing BioArray as the leading source of news about all things DNA-microarray, Marian is moving on to create another new job for herself: in July she became Editorial Director of Newsletters at GenomeWeb, where she will oversee direction of GenomeWeb’s existing newsletters, BioArray, BioInform, and ProteoMonitor, as well as any other newsletters that she decides to launch. Marian studied art theory at Harvard as an undergraduate, and is now pursuing a master’s degree in public health at Columbia University.

The Scan

Study Examines Insights Gained by Adjunct Trio RNA Sequencing in Complex Pediatric Disease Cases

Researchers in AJHG explore the diagnostic utility of adding parent-child RNA-seq to genome sequencing in dozens of families with complex, undiagnosed genetic disease.

Clinical Genomic Lab Survey Looks at Workforce Needs

Investigators use a survey approach in Genetics in Medicine Open to assess technologist applications, retention, and workforce gaps at molecular genetics and clinical cytogenetics labs in the US.

Study Considers Gene Regulatory Features Available by Sequence-Based Modeling

Investigators in Genome Biology set sequence-based models against observational and perturbation assay data, finding distal enhancer models lag behind promoter predictions.

Genetic Testing Approach Explores Origins of Blastocyst Aneuploidy

Investigators in AJHG distinguish between aneuploidy events related to meiotic missegregation in haploid cells and those involving post-zygotic mitotic errors and mosaicism.
