Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Replication of DNA, even of the simplest one, is a very sophisticated process, depending on a complex enzymatic machinery being evolved over more than a billion of years. The proper action of replication is a prerequisite to maintain the genome integrity of all living organisms and together with other mechanisms it enables the evolution of life. On the one hand the universality of basic principles of duplication, derived from data obtained from the prokaryote kingdom of life, is an undisputed fact in our times. On the other hand the coordination of replication of eukaryotic genomes and the interaction between duplication and the cell division cycle is still a matter of intense research and debate. This special issue intends to demonstrate new developments and concepts in the general field of DNA replication and related topics, e.g. DNA repair. Research or review articles on any topic within the field will be considered. We are looking forward to your contributions.
