Jane Gitscher, PhD
Dr. Gitschier is interested in discovering the genetic basis for absolute pitch, the uncanny ability to identify the pitch of a tone without a reference tone. This study has generated new insights into pitch perception. A second research area involves genetic genealogy and privacy. With a passion for genetics history, she is also the interviews editor for the open access journal PLoS Genetics and is currently working on a book project on the dawn of human molecular biology in the 1970s.
