The 2005 edition of the annual series collects the results of recent research on the genetic mechanisms at work in bacteria, plants, and animals. The longest of the 24 articles propose that mitochondrial decline and mtDNA damage are central to the etiology of age-related diseases, and review the genetic control of embryonic axis formation in zebrafish. Other topics include regulation of tryptophan biosynthesis in bacillus subtilis, the molecular signatures of natural selection, switches in bacteriophage lambda development, non- homologous end joining in yeast, and chromatin remodeling in dosage compensation.
