CHRONICLE In Memory of Alexei Pavlovich Akif’ev (1938–2007) DOI: 10.1134/S1022795407050158 higher plants and animals, mutagenesis, genetics of aging, and eugenics. For many years, Alexei P. Akif’ev headed research in mutagenesis, ﬁrst at the Institute of General Genet- ics, Russian Academy of Sciences (1965–1975) and then at the Biological Department of the Institute of Chemical Physics, Russian Academy of Sciences (1975–1997). In 1997, he returned to the Vavilov Insti- tute of General Genetics, where he worked as a princi- pal researcher heading the Group of Mutagenesis. Being a favorite student of Nikolai Dubinin, a leader of the Russian school of genetics, Akif’ev made a great contribution to understanding the mechanisms of struc- tural mutagenesis in cells of higher organisms as well as to the development of molecular and medical genet- ics. His studies in evolutionary and radiation biology attained international recognition. Together with Dubi- nin and his followers, he has developed the theory of stages and mechanisms of formation of gene and chro- mosome
