LTR retrotransposons are the most abundant transposable elements in Drosophila and are believed to have contributed significantly to genome evolution. Different reports have shown that many LTR retrotransposon families in Drosophila melanogaster emerged from recent evolutionary episodes of transpositional activity. To contribute to the knowledge of the evolutionary history of Drosophila LTR retrotransposons and the mechanisms that control their abundance, distribution and diversity, we… CONTINUE READING
