Models of the population genetics of transposable elements.
TLDR
The aim of this paper is to review the assumptions and the predictions of different models of transposable elements by highlighting the importance of the specific characteristics of both the TEs and the hosts, and the host/TE relationships.
Selfish genetic elements
TLDR
Though long dismissed as genetic curiosities, with little relevance for evolution, they are now recognized to affect a wide swath of biological processes, ranging from genome size and architecture to speciation.
Selfish genetic elements and the gene’s-eye view of evolution
TLDR
It is argued that different models highlight separate aspects of the evolution of selfish genetic elements and that the productive way forward is to maintain a plurality of perspectives.
Evolution ofDrosophila repetitive-dispersed DNA
TLDR
The unusual behavior of these repetitive-dispersed DNAs raises the possibility that this type of sequence may have an important role in the evolution of the family Drosophilidae.
Cluster of Type IV Secretion Genes in Helicobacter pylori's Plasticity Zone
TLDR
A new 16.3-kb segment is described, 7 of whose 16 open reading frames are homologs of type IV secretion genes (virB4, virB7 to virB11, and virD4), the third such putative secretion gene cluster found in H. pylori.
Early bioinformatics: the birth of a discipline - a personal view
TLDR
The early days of algorithmic questions and answers in biology, the theoretical foundations of bioinformatics, the development of algorithms and database resources and finally a realistic picture of what the field looked like from a practitioner's viewpoint 10 years ago are reviewed.
A branching-process model for the evolution of transposable elements incorporating selection
TLDR
A very general mathematical model is formulated to analyze the evolution of transposable genetic elements in prokaryotic populations and characterizes the equilibrium distribution of copy number under the influence ofcopy number-dependent selection, transposition and deletion.
The Evolutionary Potential of the Unstable Genome
The eukaryotic genome contains a large fraction of repetitive DNA, which is considered of primary importance for the expression of genetic information. Most of the moderately repetitive DNA is
Concerted transpositions of mobile genetic elements coupled with fitness changes in Drosophila melanogaster.
TLDR
In an inbred low-activity (LA) strain of Drosophila melanogaster, in situ hybridization reveals an invariant pattern of distribution of three copia-like elements that suggest the existence of a system of adaptive transpositions of mobile elements that takes part in fitness control.

Analysis of the regions flanking the human insulin gene and sequence of an Alu family member.
The regions around the human insulin gene have been studied by heteroduplex, hybridization and sequence analysis. These studies indicated that there is a region of heterogeneous length located
Conservation of segmental variants of satellite DNA of Mus musculus in a related species: Mus spretus
TLDR
The data show that the genome of M. spretus contains homologous sequences that are organized into the same type B segments as M. musculus, except for one type B segment that is under-represented in M. Spretus.
DNA sequence of baboon highly repeated DNA: evidence for evolution by nonrandom unequal crossovers.
TLDR
The DNA sequences of these primates suggest a model whereby highly repeated DNAs are established and evolve as a consequence of unequal nonrandom exchanges of DNA duplexes, possibly mediated by short repeated nucleotide sequences.

Partial nucleotide sequence of the 300-nucleotide interspersed repeated human DNA sequences
TLDR
A base sequence is determined by directly determining the base sequence of a part of the Alu family and this base sequence shows that individual members of theAlu family share a common ancestral nucleotide sequence.
Selective amplification of variants of a complex repeating unit in DNA of a crustacean.
TLDR
The results indicate that amplification of divergent repeating units could easily explain enhanced amounts of selected multimers.
Selfish DNA: the ultimate parasite
The DNA of higher organisms usually falls into two classes, one specific and the other comparatively nonspecific. It seems plausible that most of the latter originated by the spreading of sequences
Selfish genes, the phenotype paradigm and genome evolution
Natural selection operating within genomes will inevitably result in the appearance of DNAs with no phenotypic expression whose only ‘function’ is survival within genomes. Prokaryotic transposable
The specific organisation of satellite DNA sequences on the X-chromosome of Mus musculus: partial independence of chromosome evolution.
TLDR
It is found that the organisation of centromeric satellite DNA sequences on the mouse X-chromosome differs from that of other chromosomes in the complement, which suggests features of evolution of highly repeated sequences within a karyotype.
Ubiquitous, interspersed repeated sequences in mammalian genomes.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a portion of this highly conserved segment of repetitive mamalian DNA sequence is similar to a sequence found within a low molecular weight RNA that hydrogen-bonds to poly(A)-terminated RNA molecules of Chinese hamsters and a sequence that forms half of a perfect inverted repeat near the origin of DNA replication in papovaviruses.
