Abstract

Russian Journal of Developmental Biology, Vol. 36, No. 2, 2005, p. 127. Translated from Ontogenez, Vol. 36, No. 2, 2005, pp. 159–160. Original Russian Text Copyright © 2005 by Goncharov, Mitashov. JUBILEES After the Institute of Developmental Biology was organized on the basis of the Severtsov Institute of Ani- mal Morphology, he worked as an assistant director of the institute from 1972 until 1981. In 1970, Astaurov organized a new journal, Ontoge- nez (Soviet [later, Russian] Journal of Developmental Biology). Vassetzky was appointed secretary to the edi- torial board and then a member of the board, acting edi- tor in chief, and finally editor in chief.
