Mobile genetic elements (MGEs), also called transposable elements (TEs), represent universal components of most genomes and are intimately involved in nearly all aspects of genome organization, function, and evolution. However, there is currently a gap between fast-paced TE discovery in silico, stimulated by exponential growth of comparative genomic studies, and a limited number of experimental models amenable to more traditional in vitro and in vivo studies of structural, mechanistic, and regulatory properties of diverse MGEs. Experimental and computational scientists came together to bridge this gap at a recent conference, “Mobile Genetic Elements: in silico, in vitro, in vivo,” held at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) in Woods Hole, MA, USA.

Roles of polymerization dynamics, opposed motors, and a tensile element in governing the length of Xenopus extract meiotic spindles Mitchison, Timothy J.; Maddox, P.; Gaetz, J.; Groen, Aaron C.; Shirasu, M.; Desai, A.; Salmon, Edward D.; Kapoor, Tarun M. (American Society for Cell Biology, 2005-03-23)Metaphase spindles assemble to a steady state in length by mechanisms that involve microtubule dynamics and motor proteins, but they are incompletely understood. We found that Xenopus extract spindles recapitulate the ...
Determination of thallium and 17 other trace elements in the USGS glass reference materials BIR-1G, BHVO-2G and BCR-2G and their application to quantitative Tl concentrations by laser ablation ICPMS Nielsen, Sune G.; Lee, Cin-Ty A. (2012-07)Here we present the first determination of thallium (Tl) concentrations in the USGS reference materials BIR-1G, BHVO-2G and BCR-2G measured by solution ICP-MS. The Tl abundances in these three glasses span a range of about ...
