MI71-FrontMatter ARI 26 August 2017 13:21 This volume of Annual Review of Microbiology includes a recent high for us of 38 reviews, covering the range of topics shown in a word cloud generated from the titles. Some of these topics appear most years. Antibiotics—resistance, the natural roles of these molecules, and novel approaches to interfering with the establishment of pathogens to help minimize antibiotic use—continue to be an important concern for microbiolo- gists. The continuing growth of sequence information allows us new insight into evo- lution, reﬂected in ﬁve reviews in this volume, including the evolution of mating, RNA polymerases, and drug resistance in bacteria and fungi, as well as the evolution of the CRISPR defense system. Other topics highlight aspects of microbiology that many of us (or at least this Editor) may not be so familiar with. Two reviews discuss extracel- lular electron transfer, from the possible impact on geochemistry to biotechnological applications: D. Lovley focuses on direct transfer from one species to another, while D. Newman and coworkers describe the roles of extracellular electron shuttles. We thank all of our authors for the time and energy they have put into these reviews and hope our readers ﬁnd
