Contents:
The early earth / Oliver Botta and Jeffrey L. Bada -- Reconstructing the universal tree of life / James R. Brown -- The nature of the last common ancestor / Luis Delaye, Arturo Becerra, and Antonio Lazcano -- Ribozyme-catalyzed genetics / Donald H. Burke -- The scope of selection / Michael Yarus and Rob Knight -- The evolutionary history of the translation machinery / George E. Fox and Ashwinikumar K. Naik -- Functional evolution of ribosomes / C. Briones and R. Amils -- Aminoacyl-tRNA synthetases as clues to establishment of the genetic code / Lluis Ribas de Pouplana and Paul Schimmel -- The relation between function, structure, and evolution of elongation factors Tu / Mathias Sprinzl -- Origin and evolution of DNA and DNA replication machineries / Patrick Forterre, Jonathan Filíe, and Hannu Myllykallio -- Early evolution of DNA repair mechanisms / Jocelyne DiRuggiero and Frank T. Robb -- Extant variations in the genetic code / Manuel A.S. Santos and Mick F. Tuite -- Adaptive evolution of the genetic code / Rob D. Knight, S.J. Freeland, and Laura F. Landweber -- Expanding the genetic code in vitro and in vivo / Thomas J. Magliery and David R. Liu.
Summary: Combines two complementary approaches to address the question of the development of the Genetic Code. This volume provides a general reference for the academic audience interested in evolution and, simultaneously, consolidates our detailed knowledge on the biological characteristics of the components of the genetic code.
