Abstract In complex eukaryotes, transposable elements (TEs), previously considered as junk DNA, are more and more acknowledged as genome shapers and as a source of gene innovation, genome plasticity and genome divergence. Fungi are simple and easy-to-manipulate eukaryotic organisms, for which ever-increasing genome information indicates that many plant-associated fungi have a tendency to have expanded genomes. This increase in genome size is mostly driven by TE expansion that eventually shapes… CONTINUE READING
