Congratulations go out to this year’s winners of the Nobel Prize for Medicine, Jack Szostak, Carol Greider and Elizabeth Blackburn for their pioneering work on telomeres. Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press is proud to be the publisher of Telomeres, a recent book on the subject co-edited by Blackburn.

Blackburn was interviewed by Joe Gall as part of the Genetics Society of America’s “Conversations in Genetics” oral history project. Some clips from the video conversation are available online:
