Abstract
  • "Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?" The question that concludes Mary Oliver's poem, The Summer Day, reminds us not only of a poet inspired by her observations of the natural world but also of Jane Gitschier, a scientist, author, musician, and mother whose relationship with and observations of those around her have contributed so much to our community. This editorial is intended to commemorate and celebrate Jane's series of more than 40 interviews published by PLOS Genetics, spanning ten years of publishing, about a billion years of evolution—from Archea to Brassica, from prions to mammals—and a set of themes and ideas that make the word "eclectic" seem puny by comparison.
