Eukaryote DIRS1-like retrotransposons: an overview

  title={Eukaryote DIRS1-like retrotransposons: an overview},
  author={Mathieu Piedno{\"e}l and Isabelle R. Gonçalves and Dominique Higuet and Eric Bonnivard},
  booktitle={BMC Genomics},
DIRS1-like elements compose one superfamily of tyrosine recombinase-encoding retrotransposons. They have been previously reported in only a few diverse eukaryote species, describing a patchy distribution, and little is known about their origin and dynamics. Recently, we have shown that these retrotransposons are common among decapods, which calls into question the distribution of DIRS1-like retrotransposons among eukaryotes. To determine the distribution of DIRS1-like retrotransposons, we… CONTINUE READING
