A Broad Phylogenetic Survey Unveils the Diversity and Evolution of Telomeres in Eukaryotes

Telomeres, ubiquitous and essential structures of eukaryotic chromosomes, are known to come in a variety of forms, but knowledge about their actual diversity and evolution across the whole phylogenetic breadth of the eukaryotic life remains fragmentary. To fill this gap, we employed a complex experimental approach to probe telomeric minisatellites in… CONTINUE READING
