A team of Michigan State University researchers has been honored for having one of the top three articles published in the journal Genetics in 2015.

Richard Lenski, MSU Hannah Distinguished Professor of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics; Rohan Maddamsetti, his former Ph.D. student and lead author; and post-doctoral research associate Jeffrey Barrick, authored the paper that reconstructed the dynamics of 42 mutations over 20,000 generations of bacterial evolution.

The paper was published in June 2015.

The article is one of three that earned the Centennial Award by the Genetics Society of America and the editorial board for Genetics. The awards were inaugurated this year in celebration of the 100th anniversary of Genetics.
