The recent decade has engendered a convergence of the otherwise distinct fields of DNA replication, recombination, and repair, as we are learning how these essential transactions can operate in coordination to achieve genomic stability and to ensure cellular viability. In the next decade, we can anticipate a functional understanding of the roles of posttranslational protein modifications in the regulation and prioritizing of pathways for genomic maintenance. The fundamental knowledge gained should lead to more effective clinical intervention in human disease. © 2007 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
