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.

Elemental signatures in otoliths of larval walleye pollock (Theragra chalcogramma) from the northeast Pacific Ocean FitzGerald, Jennifer L.; Thorrold, Simon R.; Bailey, Kevin M.; Brown, Annette L.; Severin, Kenneth P. (U.S. Department of Commerce, 2004)The objectives of this study are to determine if larval walleye pollock from different geographic localities can be distinguished based on elemental signatures in their otoliths. By analyzing sagittal otoliths with both ...
Charette, Matthew A.; Sholkovitz, Edward R. (2005-10-17)Submarine groundwater discharge (SGD) is an important source of dissolved elements to the ocean, yet little is known regarding the chemical reactions that control their flux from sandy coastal aquifers. The net flux of ...
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 ...
