Abstract

Retroelements, mobile elements produced in DNA by reverse transcription, comprise about 40% of the human genome. A small part of these elements appeared in the genome quite recently after the divergence of humans and chimpanzees had occurred. Evolutionarily young retroelements are represented by the members of four groups, SVA, Alu, L1, and the endogenous… (More)
