Mobile genetic elements : in silico, in vitro, in vivo
MetadataShow full item record
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 ...

Cellular elemental content of individual phytoplankton cells collected during US GEOTRACES North Atlantic Transect cruises in the Subtropical western and eastern North Atlantic Ocean during Oct and Nov, 2010 and Nov. 2011. Twining, Benjamin S. (Biological and Chemical Oceanography Data Management Office (BCO-DMO). Contact: email@example.com, 2017-06-21)Phytoplankton contribute significantly to global C cycling and serve as the base of ocean food webs. Phytoplankton require trace metals for growth and also mediate the vertical distributions of many metals in the ocean. ...
