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.

Inter-annual variability in isotope and elemental ratios recorded in otoliths of an anadromous fish Walther, Benjamin D.; Thorrold, Simon R. (2008-10)Isotope ratios and elemental concentrations in otoliths are often used as natural tags to reconstruct migratory movements and connectivity patterns in marine and anadromous fishes. Although differences in otolith ...
Rotifer rDNA-specific R9 retrotransposable elements generate an exceptionally long target site duplication upon insertion Gladyshev, Eugene A.; Arkhipova, Irina R. (2009-08)Ribosomal DNA genes in many eukaryotes contain insertions of non-LTR retrotransposable elements belonging to the R2 clade. These elements persist in the host genomes by inserting site-specifically into multicopy target ...
