  • Published by the Indian Academy of Sciences

  • Retains its interest in evolutionary research
  • Presents information of relevance to geneticists, even if not explicitly genetic
  • Co-published with the Indian Academy of Sciences

This is the oldest English language journal in genetics. Founded by W. Bateson and R. C. Punnett in 1910, the Journal of Genetics was later edited by J. B. S. Haldane; later, Haldane and his wife, Helen Spurway brought the journal with them to India.

After his death in 1964, Mrs. Haldane continued publication of the journal, with Madhav Gadgil and H. Sharat Chandra (Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore) and Suresh Jayakar (Laboratorio de Genetica Biochimica ed Evoluzionistica, Pavia) as editors, until her own death in 1977. In 1985, with the permission of Haldane’s heirs, the Indian Academy of Sciences resumed publication of the journal.

The journal retains its traditional interest in evolutionary research that is of relevance to geneticists, even if not explicitly genetic in nature.

    Journal of Genetics is the oldest English language journal in genetics and was founded by W. Bateson and R. C. Punnett in 1910, and later edited by J. B. S. Haldane. When Haldane and his wife, Helen Spurway, emigrated to India in 1957, they brought the journal with them. Haldane edited the journal from India until his death in 1964, after which Helen Spurway continued to publish the journal with Madhav Gadgil and H. Sharat Chandra (Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore) and Suresh Jayakar (Laboratorio de Genetica Biochimica ed Evoluzionistica, Pavia) as editors. Upon Helen Spurway's death in 1977, the journal ceased publication for several years (the last issue published by her was Vol. 63 No. 2 of December 1977). In 1985, the Indian Academy of Sciences, Bangalore, resumed publication of the journal with the permission of Lady Naomi Mitchison, Haldane's sister and heir to the Haldane estate. The first issue published by the Indian Academy of Sciences was Vol. 64. No. 1 of July 1985. Since then, the journal continues to be published by the Indian Academy of Sciences as three issues each year (in April, August and December), forming one volume. The journal retains its traditional interest in evolutionary research that is of relevance to geneticists, even if not explicitly genetic in nature.
