Horizontal transfer of OC1 transposons in the Tasmanian devil

Gilbert, Clement; Waters, Paul; Feschotte, Cedric; Schaack, Sarah

Description

BACKGROUND There is growing recognition that horizontal DNA transfer, a process known to be common in prokaryotes, is also a significant source of genomic variation in eukaryotes. Horizontal transfer of transposable elements (HTT) may be especially prevalent in eukaryotes given the inherent mobility, widespread occurrence, and prolific abundance of these elements in many eukaryotic genomes. RESULTS Here, we provide evidence for a new case of HTT of the transposon family OposCharlie1 (OC1) in...[Show more]
